Logroño is the capital of La Rioja and is in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of almost 80 square kilometers and it is a very beautiful city that has many green areas and a very important historical heritage, thanks in part to the fact that it is a key city on the Camino de Santiago, and its gastronomy is fantastic.
The Camino de Santiago is very important as it passes through Logroño and to do so you will cross the bridge and then go up the Rúa Vieja, pass by the "Hostel of the pilgrims", through the Fountain of Santiago until you reach the Walls of Revellín, which They give you access to the Puerta del Camino.
