Burgos Cathedral, 2

More of Burgos...
In one of the chapels, numbered floor tombs; let's see, 18,
14, 19, 15...defensive backs obviously

Back side of the altar, some restoration going on

Christian graffiti

In the large halls around the cloister green

Casket of El Cid; it's a long story; not in the movie

Bishops' gallery

Visigothic Bible, 960AD

Play of light in cloister hall

Killing Moors; at least it's not in the altar...

Mine's bigger than yours department: present footprint
super-imposed on former Romanesque church

Burgos especially needs a model to be intelligible

South-side plaza
