      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      I was contemplating getting off a cruise ship at Cadiz in Mid July. It was my intention to hire a car and travel to Seville, Malaga, Cartegena and Valencia. However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?

      Is there any free paring in Burgos in the old town or nearby outside the old town? I would want to park the car upon arrival and leave it for two nights until departing the following morning. Are there any low priced inns or hostels which include free parking within walking distance of the old town?

      29 June 2013 - Big Party?

      by Nijntje1973 Online Now May 29, 2013 at 3:44 PM

      Hola! I am planning to travel to Burgos for one night on 29 June. I will be arriving in Madrid that morning and will take a bus. My colleague, who is from Burgos, told me there will be big party this week (San Pedro y San Pablo?) Could you please tell me how I can find all this festivities? Obviously I would like to see as much sight as possible as I know Burgos is beautiful, but I don't want to miss party either! Please let me know where I can get more information on this. I would love to enjoy this event with the locals!

      Also, I have been trying to surf couch but a lot of people are away at the time. Is there any cheap accommodation like hostel in the town centre? I have been searching but only seems to have hotels. I will only be there for a night so just need somewhere near to put my feet up for a few hours. I will be out most of the day/evening. All suggestions welcome!

      Gracias! :)

      Policy on non commercial photo

      by Oleg_D. Online Now Mar 25, 2012 at 1:33 AM

      Dear Members,

      First of all, thank you for your reviews on the Burgos Cathedral, Monasteries and Museums. Good job!

      Unfortunately, nobody said a single word about the policies on photography in those places of interests. I’m very interested to know are the visitors allowed to take noncommercial photos without flash light and tripod in the Cathedral, Monastery of Las Huelgas, Cartuja De Miraflores, and Museum of Altarpieces in the Saint Esteban Church and so on.

      Unfortunately many official internet sites don’t provide that information.

      Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation.

      Sincerely,
      Oleg

      Hi,
      My daughter is studying in Burgos and wondering where is a good place to shop for school supplies - notebooks, folders, backpack, etc. Also, she is wondering if the University of Burgos has a bookstore? When she has asked, people don't seem to get what she means.

      How much does it cost to go from city centre by taxi (one way) to:

      1) Cartuja de Miraflores
      or to
      2) monasterio de Cardena ?

      Is it difficult to find taxi in this places to go back to Burgos? May be it is better to take a taxi for return trip with waiting for me? How much does it cost in such case ?

Is Burgos relatively safe if we park and leave the car? Are there secure parking lots and, if so, how do I find them? TIA, Karl

      Advice and Information

      by PaulKirk Online Now Jun 8, 2006 at 12:33 PM

      Any advice and information on where to walk from Burgos. The heights above the town seem a good bet but what's up there and where do the paths go from there? Is there a village we can walk to within 10 miles of Burgos that's worth a visit? I've checked out the Burgos sites and other websites but any not to be missed places in town would be nice to know. Tapas bars and siderias are popular rather than churches or museums. A decent bar in an old square sounds good so please tell me where they are? Don't bother to tell me where Fcdonalds is. I don't go there. Cheers.
