Burgos, capital of the province of the Spanish region of Castilla y León, stands out for its medieval architecture. Its most famous monument is the cathedral of Our Lady, in French Gothic style, whose three main entrances are flanked by ornate bell towers. Inside is the Condestable chapel, decorated with figures of saints, and the tomb of El Cid (Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar). Burgos is one of the great known provinces but in turn a great unknown speleologically speaking. Sectors as important as Castro Valnera and its Abysses, the Karst of Monte Santiago, Sierra Salvada and Sierra de la Carbonilla, Pozalagua System, sinkhole system of Cueva Perilde with the Alava upwelling of Goba Haundi, or of course, the one that during many years was the largest system in Spain “Karst of Ojo Guareña Complex” with 120km.

The 14th Speleoforum is an International Congress, organized by the Castilian Leonese Federation of Speleology, within the acts on the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the European Federation of Speleology. These European congresses have an annual character. Last year 2019 was held in Bulgaria. Aimed at Spanish cavers, from the rest of the world and companions. It also allows promoting and disseminating at a social level the speleological practice and the importance of the places (karstic zones) where the cavities are found, their environmental influence, together with the geological, biological, anthropological, archaeological values, etc.
