Burgos synagogue was located in the parish of San Miguel alongside a fortified house as set out in a document from 1358. Its name appears in 1410 in another document, la sinoga que disen de Burgos. Its location has been given as number 17 Escuderos street.

There is a theory that this was the temple of a community of Jews from Burgos which set up in Segovia in view of the fact that no Segovian Jew seems to have borne the surname Burgos.

What does seem clear is that the Synagogue was expropriated in 1412 when the Jews were segregated to the Jewish quarter following the laws of Ayllón.
