La Rioja

With over 5000 km2, La Rioja is the smallest of the Spain regions. The Ebro River serves as a natural border with Alava and Navarra in the north, and in the south lies the mountains of Demand and Onion, with peaks over 2000 meters height.

Logroño is a city that invites to walk around and enjoy its beauty. The road of Santiago and four monumental churches profiled the old town, and invite you to enjoy its tapas culture and magnificent wines produced by old warehouses built centuries ago.
