Laguardia information

Laguardia is one of the most important town in La Rioja of Alava, and one of the most beautiful. It is famous all around the world because of its wines, and because it was the birthplace of fabulist Samaniego.

La Rioja of Alava has a perfect climate and “terroir” which allows the ageing of wines known all over the world. It is also an area with numerous archaeological sites, Paleolithic remains, as well as Roman and medieval elements.

The whole urban centre of Laguardia is enclosed by walls, built at the beginning of the XIII century. On each end of Mayor street we find a church. On one side is the church of San Juan, a Romanesque building that also incorporates several other architectural styles, and on the other, the church of Santa María de los Reyes. In one of the ends of the walled enclosure, in "El Collado" boulevard, we see the monument dedicated to the fabulist Samaniego, who was born in this city. It is also worth to visit a few cellars to taste or buy some of the magnificent local wines.
