Why in Burgos? And why in the Museum of Human Evolution?

Burgos has three World Cultural sites: the Our Lady of Burgos Cathedral in the centre of the city, the Atapuerca UNESCO World Heritage Site located 14 km from the city of Burgos, and the Routes of Santiago de Compostela: the Camino Francés and Routes of Northern Spain that pass through the city of Burgos.

Burgos also has 2 greenways, one starting from inside the city and one from nearby:

Because of the confluence of all these elements, together with the use of new technologies applied to tourism, the Museum of Human Evolution is the chosen venue for the international presentation of the project and the partners kick-off meeting, thanks to the kind support of the General Directorate of Tourism of Castile and Leon.
