Camino de Santiago: from Nájera to Santo Domingo de la Calzada
The route begins with a small hill that brings us back into vineyards: in the 12th century the vine was cultivated in these lands and traded with its wine. The stage does not present great difficulties and, a few kilometres from Nájera, a plain leads us to Azofra, a small town with a hostel for 100 people.
We continue between fields and we reach Plum, where in spring the field is dyed with the yellow of the rape plants. From here, the section descends to Santo Domingo de la Calzada, one of the main populations of the so-called La Rioja Alta, which flourished in the 12th century with the granting of the excerpts. The old walled city was declared an artistic historical complex and has a mystery: they say that their Romanesque cathedral was erected to welcome the remains of Santo Domingo, which we can visit today.
