Our evening proposal takes you to the capital of La Rioja, a small charming city. Logrono has a narrow street, Laurel Street, situated in the old part of the town that all visitants that come to La Rioja should go to. This street offers plenty of bars with different and delicious tapas that should be accompanied with a glass of its famous and international Rioja wine. For all these we also recommend Logroño for a perfect night out.
