      Eben Jacobs reacted to Kasee's post in the thread Atapuerca archaeological site with Like Like.
      We loved the tour of the site in Atapuerca. Our Spanish is poor, but there’s still a lot to gain from the tour. Do make reservations ahead of time. We winged it and had to wait a few hours to get a spot on the bus to the site—and we were lucky to...

      Eben Jacobs reacted to TrevorH's post in the thread Atapuerca archaeological site with Like Like.
      I found it profoundly moving to go to the site even though I understand very little Spanish. Between what i could pick out, and online guidance, and attending with an Italian woman who spoke enough Spanish and English to help, and going later to...

      Also if you visit, the people at the counter who do the bookings also speak English. I visited the centre earlier in May, and they do a lot of school visits; with busloads of students. whilst we were there (not long) there were two buses leaving...

      Eben Jacobs reacted to henrythedog's post in the thread Atapuerca archaeological site with Like Like.
      No, in my opinion. I didn’t get in any of the same sense of place as in (for example) Rome, Cairo,Athens - and many other smaller or remote places. The MoHE in Burgos is most certainly worth a couple of hours; but you’re unlikely to discover...

      Eben Jacobs reacted to Saint Mike II's post in the thread Atapuerca archaeological site with Like Like.
      I visited this site back in 2015. Yes it is a couple of km's each way, and yes the majority of the descriptions are in Spanish. But I found it interesting and back then it was free (not sure if this is still the case). If you stayed in Ages, and...

      The museum on Burgos is also a great place to visit and the weather is always good inside. Pilgrim discount with your credential.

      MEH will provide fabulous insights into the discoveries at Atapuerca, though you’ll probably still need a good translation app on your phone to get the details. The Atapuerca site provides, provided me with, a profound sense of “place” and an...

      Can anyone tell me if it is worth it to visit the archaeological site near Atapuerca if I do not understand any spanish. I am cycling the camino so the extra few kilometres will not be an issue. I do plan to visit the Museum of Human Evolution in...
