If you're travelling between Burgos and Madrid and finding the passing scenery none too eye-catching, you'll find Lerma rising up from the roadside to be a welcome diversion. An ancient settlement, Lerma hit the big time in the early 17th century, when Grand Duke Don Francisco de Rojas y Sandoval, a minister under Felipe II, launched an ambitious project to create another El Escorial. He failed, but the cobbled streets and delightful plazas of the historic quarter are an impressive legacy nonetheless.
