Navarrete is a municipality of the autonomous community of La Rioja, with a population of 2,660 (2006). Named a conjunto histórico of Spain, Navarrete is located between Logroño and Nájera on the Way of St. James, a medieval pilgrim route.

Alfonso VIII of Castile proposed to the inhabitants of the old villages of the zone that they relocate in a defensive place. These villages were known by the name of Corcuetos and their names were: San Llorente, San Antolín, San Pedro and Nuestra Señora del Prado. Their population settled around a castle raised on Tedeón hill, thus founding the new villa of Navarrete. The castle was fortified and protected with a small wall, that enclosed the settlement and it defended it from the possible attacks that threatened from the north.

In 1192 important fueros were granted to the inhabitants of the new settlement. These fueros, or charter, gave rise to the use in common of river waters and the collective exploitation of grass lands and woods to the east of the town. The charter also allowed for the establishment of local markets and fairs. Thanks to these privileges, the villa reached a great importance.

In 1367 a battle took place in the locality which is sometimes called the Battle of Navarrete, but is better known as the Battle of Nájera.

Places of interest

The historic centre is protected as a Conjunto histórico.

Buildings and monuments

  • Parish church of the Assumption (Asunción de María). Construction began in 1553 and finished in the 17th century. It consists of three naves and a baroque altarpiece.
  • Hermitage of Santa Maria del Buen Suceso. Located to the south of the municipality, in the direction of Entrena. The facade reliefs make references to the travellers of the Way of St. James.
  • The Castle. This is the name given to the highest peak of the Cerro Tedeón on account of there once being a castle there. No trace of the castle now exists. There is a viewing point from which can be seen several towns and mountains.

Logroño is a city in northern Spain. It's the capital of the autonomous community of La Rioja, well known for its wine. The Way of St. James runs through the city as does the River Ebro.

Understand

The origin of Logroño is associated to the Roman Vareia, currently a neighbourhood of the city, and the Iron Age site on top of Monte Cantabria. Being an important crossroad on the Way of St. James and strategic point between the kingdoms of Aragon, Castile and Navarra helped to develop the city during the Middle Ages.

In 1095, the king Alfonso VI of León and Castile awarded the inhabitants of Logroño with the Code of Laws named Fuero. The king John II of Castile granted the status of 'city' in 1431 and the titles of 'very noble' and 'very loyal' in 1444.

In 1521, the population heroically resisted the siege of 30,000 troops sent by the king Francis I of France for 17 days. To remember the victory, Charles I ordered three fleurs-de-lis to be added to the city's emblem. A tribunal of the Spanish Inquisition was set in Logroño in 1570, being of historical importance in 1610 during the Basque witch trials.

The 1833 territorial division of Spain established Logroño as the capital of the new Province of Logroño, renamed in 1980 to Province of La Rioja and constituted as autonomous community since 1982.

Logroño is nowadays a city of 153 066 inhabitants and considered to have one of the greatest quality of life in Spain.

Wineries

In the old city you can visit some of the vaulted underground cellars known as calados. For a bigger understanding of the winemaking you can get a tour in one of the currently active wineries that surround the city:

Eat

You can't leave Logroño without visiting the famous Calle Laurel.  that together with Travesía del Laurel, Calle San Agustin and Calle Albornoz concentrate more than 50 bars serving tapas, known in the north of Spain as pintxos.

Each bar cooks its own speciality, although new openings are specialized in more than one dish, always accompanied by a glass of Rioja wine. You can hop freely from one bar to the next one along the one hundred meters of the street that has an unbeatable atmosphere of good vibes. The circuit is popularly known as Trail of the Elephants, because people would walk on four legs if they visited all the bars.

In the neighbouring Calle San Juan.  which is 300 meters far away, you can find another 30 bars that are usually less crowded and have different specialities.

Budget
  • Prices of pintxos are around €2 so it can become expensive if you feel really hungry or can't stop trying all those delicacies. An option to keep the budget low would be ordering bigger portions of them that are called raciones and are usually served in clay pots. Some of these bars serve as well bigger sandwiches known as bocadillos or bocatas.
  • In autumn and winter you can find churrería stalls selling a fried-dough pastry named churro. During the cold months is common to find as well smaller kiosks selling roasted chestnuts.
Mid-range

During working days most of the restaurants offer a daily menu for lunch which includes three courses, bread, wine and water ranging from €10 to €15.

  • Boragos, Plaza del Mercado, 2, +34 941-250-353. Tu–Su 13:30–16:00 21:00–23:00. Modern cuisine with cod as speciality. Daily menu €20.
  • LaMaite, C/Sagasta, 6, +34 941-254-747. Traditional food with a special touch. Daily menu €14.90.
