The city of Burgos Burgos is one of the provinces which make up the Autonomous Community of Castille and Leon, the largest region in the whole European Union. This Autonomous Community constituted the Kingdoms of Castille and Leon after the Reconquest from the Moors. That is why it possesses its own cultural heritage. Geologically it is formed by the sedimentary basin of the river Duero, surrounded by mountain ranges in the North, East and South so we can find a great variety of landscapes and beautiful natural places.
The city of Burgos Burgos is one of the nine provinces which make up the Autonomous Community of Castile and Leon. In the North the Eastern foothills of the Cantabric mountain range separate it from the Cantabric Autonomous Community and the Basque Country. It is bounded by the provinces of Segovia and Soria to the South, by the Autonomous regions of La Rioja, the Basque Country and the province of Soria to the east, and by Palencia and Valladolid to the west. This prime position endows Burgos with a privileged geographic location. Founded in 884 by Count Diego Porcelos , during the reign of Alfonso III, Burgos has kept along the centuries, the stamp given by its founders. Countless monuments, parks and promenades and the little streets in the old city make a stroll through Burgos a fascinating experience. The hill on which the Castle stands affords a superb view of the city, the Cathedral shows us its grandeur and the charm of its towers and capitals which rise towards the blue sky of Castile.
