A couple of years ago we had an astonishing round trip in Northern Spain, starting in Barcelona up to Figueres, to the birthplace of Salvador Dalí and further to the lighthouse at Cabo de Creus. From there we went up to Andorra, unfortunately it was raining most of the driving, so not many photos from this stretch.
Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Santa María in Burgos, Spain, are maybe one of the most astonishing cathedrals you’ve never heard about. Details upon details wherever you turn your head, being high up on the facade, or tucked away in a corner inside. Had a huge challenge this time to choose the more interesting photos, and there are still so many more. If you like us to make a part II of this amazing cathedral so we can show you more of our photos, please tell us in the comments below.
Burgos Cathedral is the only independent cathedral in Spain (that is not a part of a larger historical center) on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
There are so much more to Spain than just sun and beaches, as you can see in this and other posts we’ve made about this versatile country. Here are some more photos from hugely amazing place called the Peaks of Europe and you can see Part I HERE
The Peaks of Europe are a mountain range in Spain, situated at the junction between Asturias, Cantabria and Castile and León, and are part of the larger Cantabrian Range stretching along northern part of the country from the Pyrenees in the east. If you happens to like mountainous landscape, you will be in heaven. Deep v-shaped valleys and steep mountainsides compete with each other for you attention. In between houses and villages appear, some abandoned many years or even centuries ago, in the most unexpected places. Where there are some green patches you will see cows and sheep grassing, and if you look closer, you will see some goats in the steeper parts.
