Founded in AD 884, Burgos has played a significant role in Spanish history. It was the capital of the united kingdoms of Castile and León from 1073 until after the fall of Granada in 1492. The city grew rich from the wool trade during the 15th and 16th centuries, financing great art and architecture. Franco chose Burgos as his Civil War headquarters.
