The charming province of Burgos is home to much more than just its well-reputed morcilla. Its one-of-a-kind cathedral awaits for you, as is also the famous pilgrimage of Camino de Santiago. All the above, together with the beautiful mountains of Atapuerca, make Burgos a region with 3 of the most important world heritage sites protected by the UNESCO.
If you want to dig in your visit doing rural tourism in Burgos, you will see that this is a region with plenty of places of cultural interest, such as religious buildings, but also non-religious ones. One of them is the monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos, with an historical archive of great importance.
Another place that should check out is the gothic façade of the La Cartuja de Miraflores cathedral, of great artistic and historical value.
If it's nature what you have in mind, you mustn't forget to visit the watercourse of the river Ebro and the river Duero, offering great views to visitors who want to be in direct contact with nature, and is also the breeding ground of some of the best wines which have proudly attained PDO status. Another name to write down is the Desfiladero de la Yecla, a sinuous rift made by the course of the river that, where you can follow its course between the narrow, rocky walls. This kind of landscape is a blessing to those intrepid tourists who are daring to get deep in the heart of the mountains of Peñas de Cervera.
