Burgos Cathedral (west facade), which amongst lots of stuff has a slab of marble under which lie the remains of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (c. 1040 – 1099 (59)), aka el Cid Campeador, and Mrs Cid, which were moved there in the 1920s from their original and much more evocative tomb in the Abbey of San Pedro de Gardina, which is a few Ks down the other side of the river.  

 

More to come!

 

 

 

The south transept rose window

 

Burgos Cathedral in the evening sun.  Unlike Leon the cathedral is on the side of a hill and also crowded by the town = difficult to photograph!  It looked as though the other side of the river was a good spot to photograph it from in the morning light, but we did not have time to prove this!  This photo is from the book on the right.
