Sa pook na ito nanirahan si Padre Burgos mula noong 1865 hanggang 1872 at nagtrabaho para sa mga pagbabago sa simbahan sa ilalim ng Espanya, naging Kura Paroko ng Parroquia del Sagrario, Fiscal Eclesiastico at pansamantalang canonigo magistral ng Katedral ng Maynila sa Intramuros. Tungkol sa kanya si Kardinal Gonzales, isang kastila, ay nagwika: "Ang Pilipinas ay mangangailangan pa marahil ng isan-daang taon upang magkaroon ng isang anak na may katalinuhang tulad ni P. Jose A Burgos." Kasama sina Padre Gomes at Zamora, siya ay namatay na isang martie sa Luneta noong Pebrero 17, 1872.
