Ok, Ricardo and I have only hit two places and we are overwhelmed. We went to the cathedral yesterday. It took us two hours to tour it and we could have taken four easy. It represents 800 years of continuous additions and renovations. There are at least a dozen chapels inside along with the main central church. The pictures below is just a sampling of what we saw. This alone is worth a trip to Burgos.
And then there is the Museum of Evolution. Since Atapuerca is so close by, they recently built and finished this amazing museum. It is huge, modern, and the displays combine film, audio, and model making in unique ways to display to put in perspective 3 million years of human evolution. I left there blown away and with a completely new understanding of how and why we have developed as a species. I was extremely grateful that they had all the displays in English as well as Spanish. This alone is worth a trip to Burgos
Now it is nap time to build strength for tomorrow's long day. Hasta luego!
