Logroño is a city in Spain, situated on the banks of the Ebro River. The city is famous for its wine trade and is also a hub of several other industries such as wood, metal and textile.

The town is well connected via road and air. The Logroño–Agoncillo Airport is only 5 km away from the city center and can be reached via cheap flights to Logroño from any corner of the world. There are a number of hotels in Logroño catering to the varied tastes of tourists.
There are lots of places to see in the city; however, most of the landmarks are religious. The first important landmark is San Bartoleme church. It was built in the 18th century and offers an aesthetic blend of Romanesque and Gothic style architecture. Concatedral de Santa María de La Redonda is another famous church in this industrial town. The church was built over an ancient Romanesque temple from the 12th century. In 1959, it was declared as a pro-cathedral. Inside the church, there are a number of chapels and several tombs. The church features twin towers, crafted by Martín de Berriatúa and they are the most notable elements of the pro-cathedral.
There are two other churches in the city named Iglesia de Santiago el Real and Santa Maria De Palacio Church. The most notable objects in Iglesia de Santiago el Real are the two sculptures of the apostle Santiago. Santa Maria De Palacio Church, as the name indicates, was built on the foundation of a palace. It’s almost 1000 years old and has gone through many changes in the past millennia. Whatever you see today is certainly an architectural masterpiece.
You can also visit Paseo del Espolón, a famous landmark where tourists take a walk to enjoy their leisure time. Here, you can see the statue of General Espartero. Your sightseeing tour will be incomplete if you don’t see the Puente de Piedra Bridge. It’s one of the 4 bridges on the Ebro River and is a symbol of the city.
