The Old Town of Logroño treasures the history of the birth and the memory of the development of the city. The people of Logroño are proud of this urban heart with so many memories of good times lived with family and friends. Strolling through its streets and entering its shops and approaching its monuments is an experience that leaves a mark on the visitor.
On the route through the Old Town of Logroño, the importance of the Ebro river, its park and the image of the bridges that draw the profile of Logroño, dotted by the towers of La Redonda, Santiago El Real, or the characteristic ‘needle’ or spier of the Imperial Church of Santa María de Palacio.
The city has moved towards a balance that allows it to combine tradition and modernity. The route is attractive with representative buildings such as the Pilgrim’s Hostel, the Palace of the Chapiteles and theMuseum of La Rioja.
The memory of certain historical episodes is also very present, such as the resistance of the city before the siege of the French in 1521 the Walls of El Revellín, whose Puerta del Revellín (also known as Puerta del Camino, after the Camino de Santiago that crosses the Old Town) is today one of the main symbols of the city.
Both in the Old Town and in the Center, commerce is one of the main attractions. A varied and quality offer that is the ideal complement for the walk. El Espolón, the city’s central promenade, Dr. Zubía’s Glorieta or the Logroño City Council itself, are significant elements of the urban reality of Logroño.
A city worth discovering!
