Did you know that... Logroño

 

Located on the right bank of the river Ebro, next to Navarre and Alava is a crossroads and in the Middle Ages border between kingdoms. Its strategic location was the reason for an endless number of confrontations to conquer it, these facts and being the place of passage that the French Way of Santiago used to cross the Ebro, have marked the annals of its history. Cradle of numerous illustrious personages. A land with deep wine roots, Logroño is still today a refuge for pilgrims on their way to the city of the Holy Apostle. All this is reflected through the centuries in its social and economic development and has forged the dynamic and friendly character of its people.

Logroño

To discover What to see in Logroño?

 

We cannot miss the panoramic view of the old city, a view that pilgrims enjoy before crossing the river Ebro over the Puente de Piedra. The church of San Bartolomé, Santiago and Palacio, together with the baroque towers of the Santa María la Redonda Cathedral, make up Logroño's unmistakable silhouette. The Door and Arch of the Revellín in the wall, the Old Town with the Portales street and Renaissance buildings such as the Espartero Palace, the current museum of La Rioja, as well as the medieval ones where the typical Calados (underground cellars excavated under the ground) are usually found, are a sample of the monumental architecture of the city. In Logroño the aforementioned French Way of Saint James and the Jacobean Way of the Ebro converge, which runs along the GR-99, the Natural Way of the Ebro, to this locality. Something we cannot forget is its gastronomic culture and of course the wine culture, being Laurel and San Juan streets the "chiquiteo zone" par excellence.

Festivities

 

June 11, are the festivities in honor of St. Barnabas, patron saint of Logroño. It commemorates the resistance and victory of the city against the siege suffered by the French troops. September 21, are the feasts of San Mateo. It is the big celebration of Logroño, also called Fiesta de la Vendimia. 18 December, the Virgen de la Esperanza, patron saint of Logroño, is celebrated.

 

Traditions

 

In the vow of San Bernabé, where the festive activities to be carried out are collected, a procession through the streets of the city carrying the image of the Saint is included and it is during this procession where we can contemplate the tradition of Los Banderazos, the mayor gives some banners in 3 specific points of the city, in the arch of San Bernabé, in the Puerta del Revellín and in the doors of the Provincial Hospital, where the Puerta de San Francisco used to be. These banners are given with the ensign of the city, formed by the cross of San Andrés, granted to the city by the king Fernando III the Saint.

Curiosities

 

During the San Bernabé festivities, a commemorative arch is placed in Portales Street, next to the old town hall. This arch, which is decorated with boxwood leaves, gives rise to an infinite number of popular beliefs about it. It is said that to be fortunate in love you have to pass three times underneath it. It is also said that you have to pass the lame leg in order for your wishes to be fulfilled. Therefore, very few citizens or visitors are reluctant to take away any of the leaves that cover the pillars of the door, ending the festivities completely bare.
