The letter sent by Philip II to the city of Burgos, in which he told that his wife, Ana from Austria, would made a break in her way to Segovia, moved all the city power groups to be asle to welcome the queen in the most dignified way as possible. In two months, the city had to be “transformed” to do great event. The queen’s stay in the city of Arlanzón has been studied through the three Relationships that are preserved, from two points of view: artistic and semantic, but without taking as a source many documents filed in this regard in archives of Burgos. The main goad of this work is to show the economic effort that the queen’s stay involved to a city that was still trying to recover from the plague epidemic of 1965, that was giving men and money to appease the Moorish uprising in the Alpujarras, at the same time that its foreign trade resented after the uprising of the Netherlands and bad crops demanded another obligations to ist inhabitants.
