Welcome to Burgos

Burgos is a city in northern Spain. It belongs to the region Castile and Leon.

Although this capital is well known for its freezing weather, its beauty and culture are worth a visit.

In Burgos you can enjoy a mixture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in their ancient buildings, monasteries and the magnificent cathedral. There are also modern buildings like the Human Evolution Complex, where you can find one of the most visited museums in the region.

There are lots of historical statues around the city, the main one being the one dedicated to the memory of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, known as "el Cid", legendary hero of the city.

Burgos local hero: El Cid

What if the police ask me what I’m doing?

Show them your scanner and tell them that you’re playing a game called Ingress (precursor to Pokémon). Local police has been informed and will be around in case you need any help with directions, etc... Most of them have heard what it is, if a policeman does not know what Ingress is, try going to a portal and show them about it. Don't be silly and shout about blowing up portals and please abide by the law at all times. Do not bring yourself, other players, or the game into shame by doing otherwise.
