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 passes through the Rioja Alta Golf Club where pilgrims are served alongside golfers. It no longer goes through Cirueña but passes immediately adjacent to it. Ciriñuela however has been separated from the camino by a large residential complex (there is still a bar that which serves locals, and the owner can point the way back to the camino without you having to retrace your steps).

This is a great place to stop and relax especially if you prefer between stages, but just know there's currently no bus going through here if that is something you're looking for

The bar by the municipal albergue just around the corner really does have some of the tastiest tortilla I've had so far. The rest of the food is okay but really the tortilla was worth

Had a good stop in Azofra: the municipal albergue is wonderful: double rooms only, excellent facilities, and even a plunge pool to cool you down!
The town had two bars/restaurants open and a small but well stocked supermarket.

This cafe serves huge pieces of tortilla that are delicious. It also has lovely music playing. Very nice.

Stayed here in April 2022. Each room has 2 beds and 2 closets. There is a full kitchen and laundry, with a nice sunny patio with clotheslines. There is only a small shop that sells some food, so you won’t be able to get too fancy with cooking unless you bring food from Najera. It was not very busy and is a good alternative if you can’t get a bed in Najera.
