Don Carlos Bodega Historica

The historic Don Carlos winery is an underground cellar from the 15th century located in the center of Aranda de Duero. They offer guided tours where they explain everything about this type of wineries. It is also a wine shop, with a large selection of wines from Ribera del Duero (small producers, Vega Sicilia, Pingus ...) They also offer a commented wine tasting. The winery is open for visits from Monday to Saturday: from 11 PM to 2 PM and from 5 PM to 8 PM. Private visits and other activities can be arranged upon request from Monday to Sunday. Aranda is the largest city in the wine region of Ribera del Duero, and is famous for its wines, roast lamb and its underground cellars. Most of them are privately owned and are not open to the public. The Don Carlos winery is an exception, it was restored by its owners and open to the public so that everyone can enjoy this particular construction so popular in Ribera's wine history. During the visit you will feel that you are in the past

Cartuja de Miraflores

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.

A lot of emphasis on the Atapuerca digging site. I believe that the origin of mankind is connected with the transfer from oral to written history. So virtually nothing that could interest me. The great architectural design justified the 6 € entrance fee.

Territorio Artlanza

Es un espacio que expone y da a conocer la cultura popular de nuestros pueblos. El punto inicial es el taller/museo de cerámica, donde Félix Yáñez, el autor de la obra, trabaja y expone sus esculturas de terracota. En sus más de 15.000m2 que abarca, se encuentra también la recreación (a tamaño natural) de un pueblo castellano desde la época medieval hasta el siglo pasado. Construido desde cero con materiales reciclados, encontrados en escombreras, Félix ha levantado las callejuelas y plazas que lo conforman. Recorrerlo supone dar con varios museos, escaparates y portales que muestran los comercios y servicios de antaño, sin olvidar la propia ermita del poblado. En su interior cuenta también con dos corrales de comedias, que cobran vida en los meses de julio y agosto acogiendo las actividades de cada verano cultural, como el festival nacional de teatro, las noches de flamenco o de cine. También se realizan talleres con colegios, previa reserva telefónica.
