Burgos is a city in the north of Spain and is considered, historically, to have been the capital city of Castille. Today, Castille does not have official recognition in terms of known boundaries, but throughout the history books, it is commonly mentioned, and widely referred to as the 'land of castles' because of the numerous architectural marvels in form of castles and Cathedrals. It borders Valladolid which is located to its south-west and Bilbao to its north. The city is said to have been founded in 884 by Diego Rodriguez who was a count of Castille, as an (administrative) outpost of the regime at the time. Burgos grew and thrived until at one point it distinguished itself as independent, and a few centuries later (11th Century), it became the Kingdom of Castille. Nowadays, it is a city with a population of roughly 180,000 inhabitants with the metropolitan section accounting for an extra 20,000 people. The urbanization has been slow owing to the numerous historic buildings and as such, it is difficult to manoeuver around, which is why you need to hire a car via a car rental in Burgos

General Info on Burgos
Burgos is a major tourist destination in Spain to the extent the historic Cathedral of Burgos was declared by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation), a World Heritage Site in 1984, meaning it is protected by international treaties because of its significance in humanity, particularly influencing art (sculpting) and architectural styles. Almost the entire surrounding area, immediately after stepping out of the Cathedral, still has a large number of residential houses, churches, and palaces which have existed since medieval times. By aiming to preserve this heritage, urbanization efforts have been few and apart and hence a modernized transport network has been difficult to thrive, which is why it is advisable to use a rental car in Burgos for convenience.
Rental Car Burgos - Plan and Tour In Style
When in Burgos, taking a simple walk can be the best way to cover most of older parts of the city. In the area surrounding the Burgos Cathedral, the streets are narrow, since they were designed for small carriages and horses. However, there are portions of the city which have been urbanized, with road networks which would allow you to take a tour within the city, albeit in a small car, in one of the 10 museums. The effectiveness of a car rental in Burgos is that once you get to the older parts of the city such as a visit to the 11th Century Abbey of Santa Maria you can always count on the driver to, for instance, drop you off and have him/her wait for you at a designated pick up point. Since you rented the car, you do not incur periodic charges such as those from a cab service.
