The Coliseum Burgos mainly hosts bullfights, which is why the venue was also called "Plaza de Toros de Burgos" until 2015. The stadium is also the home of the basketball club Miraflores SAD, better known by its sponsor name San Pablo Burgos and whose first team plays in the ACB league.
One of the most famous sights in Burgos is the beautiful Burgos Castle, which is located on the hill of San Miguel, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view. The walk around the castle takes about 15 minutes.
