Overview
More
Miraflores was originally a hunting lodge built by King Enrique III at the beginning of the 15th century and then converted into a monastery by the Carthusian monks, who continue there today. The remarkable church is considered one of the principal monuments of the city of Burgos and contains a royal mausoleum that is the final resting place of King Juan II and his wife Queen Isabel, parents of Queen Isabel "La Catolica". Visitors can look forward to an extraordinary experience of silence, peace and beauty.

Somehow very touching place. Feels holy, I must say. Silence, spirituality.. Free entrance in some hours of the day, they sell a little brochure that explains the place and the way of life there, with personal touch.
