Surely you have heard of the Calle Laurel and you’ve come to drink La Rioja wine . You may have even heard it said that in Logroño there is nothing else to see, but I do not agree with that idea.
Logroño is linked to the history of Rioja wine itself, in the center we can find unique spaces such as the old communal wineries and underground drafts hidden under the emblazoned houses.
Logroño is a border city and its evolution throughout history has a lot to do with this circumstance: The remains of the wall and the cube of El Revellín and the fleurs-de-lis on its shield are proof of its value. You want to know why?
In addition to the border, it is a meeting place for cultures and religions, it is an obligatory stop on the main street in Europe, the Camino de Santiago, that passes through Santa María de la Redonda . We have medieval legends, a rich religious life and dramatic stories of the Inquisition, streets with names of trades and houses inhabited by families of Sephardic origin.
The great local figures of the 19th century were statesmen of Spain and this fact, in turn, will mark the transformation of the city, hence the monuments of General Espartero , the Museum of La Rioja and the statue of D. Práxedes Mateo Sagasta , among others.
I wait for you in Logroño and I assure you that with our private and personalized tour you will have new stories to tell every time you have a glass of Rioja in your hand.
