The eastern entrance to Nájera is not easy on the eyes. This new part of the town grew up on the east bank of the Río Najerilla (the cliffs prohibit expansion to the west) and much of the city’s industry is located here.

Fiesta: 

The Najerinos keep a busy fiesta calendar. San Antón is celebrated on the 17th of January. San Prudencio (patron of the city) on the 28th of April. San Antonio on the 13th of June. San Juan and San Pedro from the 24th to the 30th of June. San Juan Mártir and Santa María la Real from the 15th to the 18th of September. And San Miguel the weekend closest to the 29th of September.

If the celebration of Saints doesn’t move you, perhaps the celebration of the Rioja Pepper might. It is on the last Sunday of May.

The Road: 

On the way to Azofra, take notice of the modern aqueducts which help to irrigate the land. They are gravity fed and are a real-world example of hydraulics in action, with sections that pass beneath the road rather than passing above it.
