History and curiosities of Cartuja de Miraflores

Cartuja de Miraflores is a monastery located in Burgos, founded in 1441 by Juan II of Castile and his wife Isabel of Portugal. The construction of the monastery was not completed until 1484 and today it is considered one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Spain.

Proof of this is the impressive altarpiece carved in walnut wood, created by Gil de Silóe and his son Diego between 1486 and 1492. The altarpiece is part of the Renaissance in Spain, also considered one of the most impressive in Europe.

The monastery also houses the tomb of Juan II and Isabel of Portugal, specifically in a dedicated chapel. The tomb itself falls into the category of a true piece of art, with sculptures and fine carved decorations.

La Cartuja de Miraflores continues to be a place of worship, being an essential visit to delight us with its architecture and works of art; making it a place that no visitor to Burgos or pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago should miss.
