Is Burgos Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Burgos is a historic city, nestled in the northern part of Spain on the Arlanzón River and known for its rich medieval heritage. The city's crowning glory is the majestic Burgos Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whose soaring spires dominate the skyline. Burgos is also renowned for its well-preserved medieval architecture, including a plethora of churches and monasteries, a charming old quarter, and the famous Burgos Castle perched high above the city, offering spectacular views. As the birthplace of the legendary El Cid, its folklore and traditions add an extra layer of enchantment to the city. It's not just the history and culture that captivate visitors to Burgos; its location in Spain's wine country and reputation for fantastic local cuisine, particularly the famous blood sausage 'morcilla', promise a truly delightful gastronomical experience for all.

Hola! Im an au pair in Burgos. I've spent 2 months now and I can say that is city can be the safest for everyone! It's a small city but surrounded by nature and nice people. You can easily find delicious food. You should definitely try Valor for churros and many local restraunts for launch. Villages are great in Burgos. You should definitely see some of them. City center is really small and you can see the museums and the cathedral in 2 days. I hope you enjoy your time in Burgos!
