Follow this route over the lands of wine. If you choose this route you will be able to organise visits to the wineries in Rioja Baja and Rioja Alta.
La Rioja is the land of wine; a privileged place where this product reaches its pinnacle. Near to Calahorra, you will be able to visit the wineries of Rioja Baja such as the Bodega Torres Librada (Alfaro) or the Bodega Rioja Baja: Bodegas Viña Herminia (Aldeanuela del Ebro). In Calahorra we recommend visiting the Cathedral and the Palacio Episcopal.
When you get to Olite and see the silhouette on the horizon, you will feel that there is still a lot more to discover. The town gives us the opportunity to visit the Palacio de los Reyes de Navarra palace, the Santa María la Real church, the San Pedro Apóstal church and the Plaza de Carlos III square. You will be able to discover the world of wine at the Wine and Vineyard Museum of Navarra that is located in the same beautiful square as the Parador. The wineries of Piedemonte, Marco Real and Ochoa are all of interest in the town of Olite.
The town of Santo Domingo is an excellent starting point to discover Rioja Alta in all its beauty and world-famous wine-growing heritage. It is recommendable to visit the Ontañón winery-museum (Logroño), the Oenological Station of Haro (Haro), the museum of the Vivanco Wine Culture (Briones) as well as some of the wineries in Rioja Alta, or going on a route of the ‘Wine Architecture’ (Gehry, Calatrava, Moneo, etc.). In Santo Domingo you will be able to discover the Extenta Tower, the Cathedral (main altarpiece, the mausoleum of the saint, the hen house and the cloister), or the nearby town of San Millán de la Cogolla, with the San Millán de Yuso Monastery and the San Millán de Suso Monastery.
