It has many historic landmarks, of particulaimportance; the Cathedral of Burgos (declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984), Las HuelgasReales Monastery and the Cartuja of Miraflores. A large number of churches, palaces and other buildings from the medieval age remain. The city is surrounded by the Fuentes Blancasand the Paseo de la Isla parks. Castilian nobleman, military leader, and diplomat El Cid Campeador is a significant historical figure in the city, as he was born a couple of miles north of Burgos and was raised and educated here.
