About Logroño

Including tips for the best time to visit Logroño

While the hills of La Rioja are legendary in Spain for their wine-making, the region's capital – a wine town known as Logroño – flies under the radar. That leaves its streets relatively quiet and its restaurants mostly to Spainards, who come to experience uncrowded bars and restaurants and wine country life without the fuss.

Being the capital of one of Spain's best-known wine regions, Logroño has much to offer in the way of wine. The city is rife with traditional underground cellars known as calados, where local vintages are served in vaulted spaces. You needn't head far from the city, either, to explore a full-service winery like Bodegas Campo Viejo, Bodegas Franco Españolas or Bodegas Marqués de Murrieta.

The food is top-notch in Logroño, which is known particularly for its pintxos – bar snacks popularly served throughout Basque country. Calle Laurel is a famous street in Logroño lined with all amounts of tapas and wine bars and has become the spot to sit down for a taste of authentic Riojan cuisine.

Although arguably best known for its wine culture, Logroño is also famously situated along the pilgrimage route to the Camino de Santiago. You'll discover a handful of important religious attractions right in town, including the Santa María de la Redonda Cathedral – a heritage church featuring two ornate towers and Flemish Renaissance art. Romanesque architecture is a highlight at the Church of San Bartolomé, the oldest church in Logroño dating back to the 12th century.

The old town is nice, just like a lot of cities in Spain.

The old town is nice, just like a lot of cities in Spain. There's one thing that makes this town stand out from the others. It is in the centre of the wine region and has multiple wineries. Visiting one of them is an absolute recommendation. At night, the city comes alive. The people from Logroño meet up for some drinks and tapas. It is especially busy in the long and narrow street of Calle del Laurel

This was a transit vist for us from Gandia to Bilbao. If we did this trip again we would not stay in this hotel. Its very important to us to be able to recharge our phones and tablets and if you are paying +100 euros a night we expect better

Lively nightlife with great tapas and bars but friendly...

Lively nightlife with great tapas and bars but friendly relaxed vibe rather than rowdy. Compact and interesting medieval old town and situated well to visit the bodegas in Rioja and other interesting towns and villages in the region .

Logroño is a wine lover's paradise.

April 25, 2022

Logroño is a wine lover's paradise. Calle Laurel and the streets around the Cathedral have some of the most delicious Taperias and 'una copita de vino'. Highly recommend that you try the house 'copita' with the Tapas the house is known for... the pairing usually brings out the best of both flavors. Make sure you don't forget to get fitted for a stylish sombrero so you can savor all that Logroño has to offer in style.

Logrono is a great location for lovers of food and wine.

October 13, 2021

Logrono is a great location for lovers of food and wine. It is right in the heart of Rioja, and surrounded by bodegas to visit. The best part about Logrono is Calle Laurel and Calle San Juan which are perfect for lovers of Pintxos, as you can want from bar to bar sampling the specialities of each venue.
