The house of the Monarchs
Sep 2019 • Couples
We passed by this beautiful 15th century palace on the way back to our car. So glad we did not miss it! I was very impressed both with the imposing Gothic facade and the history of this building. The Spanish Kings welcomed Christopher Columbus there upon his return from his second journey to America.

Amazing Late Medieval building
Oct 2019
it was here that Columbus met the Spanish Kings upon his return from the second trip to the Americas, I could not visit inside in my visit but just admiring it from the outside is well worth and admire the Cordon above the entrance.

Beautiful facade
Oct 2019 • Couples
This former palace was built as a pied a terre by the same wealthy family responsible for building the Inglesia de San Nicholas. It is a stunning and imposing building. Separate from its courtyard the interior has been totally remodelled by the bank that now occupies it.
Very central and worth looking at.

Great outside and a nice inside courtyard
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is one of the few grand city palaces that are still standing in Burgos. It is currently owned by a bank, and functions as such. However, you can enter and see the inner courtyard, which has been tastefully integrated with the modern roof, and its modern function as a bank. The outside has some very nice decorations and heraldic shields, so even if the bank is already closed, it is worthwhile to pass by to see the exterior.

Beautiful historic building right in teh middle of the city
Mar 2018 • Solo
This is a masterpiece of architectural elegance. It is supposed to be gothic, but I found it more subtle and it seemed to be more pre-Romanesque or Renaissance in appearance.
Quite beautiful

Visit of the historical center of Burgos.
Apr 2018 • Solo
The house “Cultural Cordón” is located in one of the most emblematic and historic spaces of the city of Burgos. The Palace of the Condestables of Castile, who is also known as the Casa del Cordón, where important historical events took place, such as the reception of Columbus on his second trip to the New World by the Catholic Monarchs or the death of Felipe I El Hermoso. This is a location not to miss during your walk in the historical centre.

Good Architecture
Sep 2016 • Couples
The Casa del Cordon is the most important piece of civil architecture of Burgos. It was constructed in the 15th century and its creator was Simon de Colonia. This is one of the most important buildings in the city.

A relaxing place for a pitstop
Jun 2016 • Couples
An exciting place for a pitstop with plenty on offer for shopping, eating or just people watching. Clever use of marble benches allow weary travellers to stop for a while while you choose your eating place.

Wonderful architecture on a human scale
Mar 2016
Other reviewers have given good historical facts about this stunning building. Walk around and let some of the history sink in. Spare a thought for Christopher Columbus who had to travel here all the way from the coast of Andalusia to provide a report on his second exploration! A real downside though is that nearly all of the ground floor is occupied by a bank. Please Tourist Authorities of Burgos, find them a nice new place and use the premises to set it into a proper historical perspective!!

A meeting place with significant historical value
Sep 2015 • Couples
Built during the 15th century, this building was recorded to have been a meeting place among Catholic and Spanish royalty as well as part-time residence for visiting dignitaries. It was here where the great explorer, Christopher Columbus met with the Spanish rulers at that time to report on his second journey to the new world. Its name "Cordon" was apparently derived from the cord, symbol of the Franciscan order, which served as borders of the main entrance. What was interesting was that on account of the richness and the multitude of historical sites in Burgos, one could easily find important places like this just by taking a stroll through the narrow streets of this beautiful city.
