The Camino de Santiago in its stage from Logroño to Nájera takes place between the characteristic vineyards that bathe much of the Riojanas lands. In this video we discover the route of the French Way between the capital of La Rioja and one of its main cities, Nájera, without forgetting its vineyards and also its unavoidable stops.

Camino de Santiago, from Logroño to Nájera
We leave Logroño by the Torre de Revellín or Puerta del Camino. We cross the swamp of La Grajera and the high of the same name between vineyards. We arrived at Navarrete, with its medieval streets and the ruins of San Juan de Acre, a 13th-century pilgrim's hospital.
We follow the road between vineyards, we pass through Ventosa and we climb the high of San Antón. We are in the new valley of the Najerilla, always between vineyards.
We arrived at Nájera, political center of the Reconquista and former capital of La Rioja. The city has built a large hospital of pilgrims, as they wanted to be an important stop of the Camino. In Nájera stands out the monastery of Santa María la Real, built in the 11th century and rebuilt in the 15th. Its Gothic cloister is also a must visit.
