In 1919 the cathedral became the burial place of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (“El Cid”), and his wife Doña Jimena. The cathedral was declared “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO on October 31 of 1984. Of great interest is the Papamoscas (Flycatcher), an articulated statue which opens its mouth upon the sounding of the bells at each hour. Here is also the tomb of El Cid and his wife Doña Jimena, the letter of security of El Cid and his chest.

Burgos Cathedral (Spanish: Catedral de Burgos) is a Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral in Burgos, Spain. It is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is famous for its vast size and unique architecture. Its construction began in 1221 and it was in use as a church nine years later but work continued off and on until 1567. It was primarily built in the French Gothic style, although Renaissance style works were added in the 15th and 16th centuries.
