Construction on the cathedral in Burgos began in 1221 under Fernando III, the King of Castilla, and was dedicated in 1765 with the construction of the towers and the dome.
The long time it took to build this gothic cathedral gives it a unique architectural coherence due to the changes in styles and influences over the centuries.
It has four entrances. The basilica has three chambers surrounded by thirteen precious chapels and a cross chamber that measures 70 meters wide. It is the same height as the central chamber and forms a Latin cross.
