Museo del Libro Fadrique de Basilea. Museo del Cid

The Museo del Libro Fadrique de Basilea is a museum located in the centre of the city of Burgos and is dedicated to the history of the book. Its name refers to an important printer of the 15th century, which had its workshop near the cathedral. The first edition of “La Celestina” was printed here. The museum is run by a private publishing company called Siloé, specialising in facsimile reproductions of ancient books. It was inaugurated in 2010 with the aim of bringing visitors closer to the world of the preservation and copying of ancient books, at the same time as showing a chronological exhibit of the history of the book.

This museum is located in a four-storey building, shared with the El Cid Museum. This new museum, opened in 2018, brings us the history of this Castilian knight through facsimiles of Cantar del Mio Cid or his Carta de Arras. Both museums are entirely adapted to the needs of the visitor.
