Once you have crossed the río Ebro, you have entered Logroño proper.

Worth visiting are the Concatedral de Santa María de La Redonda (it shares the title of Cathedral with Santo Domingo, and it has a semi-hidden painting of the crucifixion by Michelangelo), the...

History: 

Like a few towns before, and several ahead, Logroño owes its success to the construction of the stone bridge over the río Ebro which for a long time was the only suitable crossing point of this wide river. As such it was able to command a toll, to which pilgrims were subjected....

Fiesta: 

Logroño seems always to be in a state of celebration. The two big festivals are for San Bernabé on the 11th of June, and San Mateo on the 21st of September. The latter of these two, held during the fall harvest, is much to do about wine.

The Road: 

Leaving Logroño is not unlike departing most large cities in that it winds its way across town in a way that mixes landmarks with practicalities. There are plenty of arrows to mark the way, but most are painted low on curbs and can be difficult to see if you are a pre-dawn walker. If in...

Navarrete, much fought over and mostly destroyed, no longer has any of its medieval history to share. It does, however, have a few covered arcades which give you a sense of its past. Like is common on an otherwise flat land, the town was developed around a hill; you will see plenty more...

Fiesta: 

Market day is Wednesday. In mid-August, the town turns out to celebrate the Virgen and San Roque. On the 29th of September, during the grape harvest, they celebrate their patron saint, San Miguel.

The Road: 

On the way into Navarrete you pass the remains of 12th century San Juan de Acre. While there is not much left, the footprint remains well enough preserved to spark the imagination. The original entrance to the former pilgrim hospital has been reincarnated as the entrance to the...

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. 

Leaving town is notably better as you transition...

History: 

Nájera, named for its position “between cliffs,” is a city that has been in favor since Sancho III (El Mayor) made it the capital when Pamplona was captured. At the time the camino passed further to the north, in the rugged but more protected mountains. His efforts moved the...

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.

A somewhat sleepy town, it is well maintained and a suitable place for breakfast if you set off from Nájera in the morning. The municipal albergue here is well appointed, and all rooms are double rooms.

The Road: 

The camino between Azofra and Cirueña has been modified in recent years to navigate around a large and largely unused golf course and neighborhood, and in the process the village of Ciriñuela was bypassed entirely.

The highlight of the town is the Catedral de Santo Domingo de la Calzada and its gothic henhouse.  Santo Domingo is buried there as well, fittingly, in the middle of the road. The only remaining tower (of the original three) is detached and is located across the street.  This is a rarity...

History: 

“Santo Domingo of the Road” is named after a local monk (Domingo of Viloria) who dedicated his life to the care of pilgrims. In particular, he focused on the engineered elements of the way, building roads and bridges to improve the quality of passage. It was he that built the original...

Fiesta: 

The Feast day of Santo Domingo is celebrated from May 1st  to the 15th, but the celebration really gets going on the 10th. This is quite a celebration indeed, and the feasts themselves include a tremendous quantity of meet followed by all-night processions through town.

There is also a medieval market, held from the 4th to the 8th of December.

The Road: 

Leaving town you cross over the mostly dried up río Oja. The bridge is a rebuilt version of Domingo’s original.

The dam here, and the resulting ecosystem, was constructed in 1883 as a way to...
