This morning you end your tour in Logroño, the capital of a new autonomous region, La Rioja.

The city celebrates its wine heritage with numerous wine bars (called “bodegas”) and wineries, offering visitors a chance to sample a wide variety of local wines.

As you enter Logroño you will cross the Ebro River over the Puente de Piedra (Stone Bridge), a path used by pilgrims over the centuries. Inside the city you can visit the well-preserved historic center and the Co-Cathedral of Santa María de la Redonda, a beautiful Gothic-style cathedral and one of many churches preserved in the town. 

Given today is a shorter walk and last day on the Camino de Santiago, it may be appropriate to spend the afternoon with a visit to a local bodega* to sample some of these fine bottles of treasured red wine!
