Architecture and monuments

Antiquity and modernity. Richness and uniqueness. Protection and restoration. Spain's artistic and architectural heritage is in itself a compelling reason to visit our country. Spain's role as a crossroads between civilisations since prehistoric times enables it to offer visitors an extensive and abundant monumental heritage. Whether these are the remains of early settlements, archaeological sites left by remote and mysterious cultures, or outstanding buildings and works of engineering at the cutting edge of international architecture, any journey around Spain immediately involves a fusion between antiquity and modernity. And this is also thanks to the efforts which in recent decades have gone into protecting, restoring and adapting this priceless heritage for use by visitors.

Burgos Cathedral.  -  In 2021 the cathedral will be 800 years old, but it will have something new to show off. Its wooden doors will be replaced by new ones created in bronze by Antonio López, restoring the iconography of the original entrance.   See more
