  • Bodegas Darien, Logroño

Capital of La Rioja, the land of wine, this city has been intrinsically linked to the Way of Saint James since time immemorial.Read more...

What to see One of the most famous landmarks is the bridge known as Puente de Piedra. It is the gateway to Logroño for pilgrims travelling the Way of Saint James. If you continue along Rúa Vieja, you'll come to buildings and monuments closely related to the pilgrim route, such as the Albergue (hostel) and La Fuente de los Peregrinos (Fountain of the Pilgrims). Another fine example is Santiago church. In the old city centre, you'll find lots of temples. The most outstanding is the cathedral of Santa María la Redonda, which has a portrayal of the Calvary attributed to Michelangelo. Other important examples include San Bartolomé church, which has a Mudejar tower and is dedicated to the patron saint of Logroño; and Santa María de Palacio church, the oldest in the city. The most notable examples of civil architecture include the palace of the Marquis of Legarda, Los Chapiteles palace and La Rioja Museum, housed in Espartero palace. We also suggest a stroll around the gardens on Paseo del Espolón. Gastronomy Wines from La Rioja and locally grown produce are the star attractions. Be sure to try some typical local dishes such as Rioja-style potatoes, lamb chops grilled over vine shoots, “menestra de verduras” (sautéed vegetables) and stuffed peppers. Typical desserts include pears in red wine, “Fardelejos de Arnedo” (almond pastries) and Soto marzipan.
