Take advantage of your Intensive Business English and General English courses to visit and explore La Rioja
After the training sessions and the intensive learning, there should, of course, be space for some free time. So much to see, it is hard to make a decision. However, there are some places one just has to visit in La Rioja.
Haro, the capital of wine of La Rioja, is situated in the middle of a sea of vineyards on the shores of the Ebro River. Here, you can visit several of the most famous wine cellars in the district of Barrio de las Bodegas.
Rutas del Románico. In the 10th century, the Kings of Pamplona established their court in Nájera and channelled the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James) through La Rioja. This was the starting point for the Romanesque culture to start flourishing in the region, leaving behind monasteries, hermitages, sculptures and bridges.
Logroño, the capital of La Rioja, is full with history and features a very cosy old town, where both gourmets and gourmands have a wealth of options. Finish off your day, after having visited this small medieval city and the region, tasting the specialties of the bars in Laurel Street and San Juan Street, not to mention a glass of Rioja!
