Wine Museum

We recommend you take the time to visit some well-known tourist destinations and hidden gems of the La Rioja region.

The town of Santo Domingo de la Calzada was named after a monk who dedicated his life to constructing roads and bridges so that the pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago might enjoy an easier journey. It has a wonderful 12th and 13th-century cathedral that presides over a maze of charming medieval streets. The town lies on the banks of the Río Oja, which gives the region its name.

Haro is the centre of La Rioja's wine land. There's a wine museum and the tourist office can provide details of those bodegas open to the public - around 50 wineries in the La Rioja region open their doors to visitors. Haro also has a wide selection of excellent restaurants and wine shops.

The monasteries of Suso and Yuso in the village of San Millán de la Cogolla are two of the region's most notable monasteries and together have been named a World Heritage site. Yuso's museum holds valuable paintings and a gold and ivory reliquary that contains the remains of San Millán.
