The Plaza is a busy plaza with lots of traffic and the statue sits in the center. It is a beautiful and large statue that is worth taking the time to see. It is located near many other attractions in the area.

Burgos is the city of El CID. This is the best statue I've seen of him and it's a natural photo op. The plaza is often full but there are coffee shops to sit and linger.

As mentioned above. as a historian I like the statue and knowing the role of El Cid in history makes it interesting for me personally. However the actual square is nothing special but from here you can make your way through the old town center.

The statue of El Cid is impressive just for dynamic portrayal but the plaza is not spectacular with traffic all about. Best go to Plaza Mayor for a more relaxing experience.

We were on the tour train and saw this as it was not far from the end we walked back. Is a large statue showing El Cid in his splendour, loads of traffic so if you go be careful.

we saw this on part of a city tour. El Cid is popular in this part of spain and this is a statue of him.

If you are walking the Camino de Santiago, this is one of the key meeting places to find lost pilgrims.

Pleasant enough square with busy traffic and big statue of El Cid. Easy to get to and can be final part of stroll along the river side. In the end it is a big statue on a traffic island.

It's a beautiful place of peace and tranquility in the bustling heart of Burgos. I particularly liked the river, which has a little rapid going on.
