Admirable architectural style

It must be the greatest and most famous religious building in Logroño. We are in front of the Co-cathedral of Santa María de La Redonda, standing out with its two towers. The porch is really admirable.

It is also very nice to have a walk in the interior, where there are different paintings, such as the Crucifixion, attributed to Michelangelo Buonarotti. There are also very lively sculptures. The day I visited the co-cathedral there was almost no one so we could appreciate the entire church.

I was not surprised at all when I saw the wire netting in the porch so that pigeons would not make the entrance dirty. I had the opportunity to see how they prepared the Holy Week in the city, with many volunteers and curious tourists. During the last week of March, I had the opportunity to enjoy this monument and this quiet village bathed by the Ebro river.

The greatest attraction is the architectural style, being a baroque church, since it was started around the 16th century. A few meters away, there is Laurel Street, one of the best places for pinchos in La Rioja and in Spain. I highly recommend it. If you are looking for another type of tourism and something different, I also recommend visiting the Palomares de Nalda.

Gothic beauty

The exterior is very appealing, especially because of its height and the detail of the two twin towers and the main entrance, as well as the wrought-iron gate protecting it.

I had the chance to see it at night and during the day, and I recommend doing the same if you can, since during the day you see it in a more general way and at night you can observe all the different shades. What I liked the most was the exterior, probably because I do not have sufficient knowledge to enjoy the works of art you have inside.

On Sunday morning we were walking on the market square, which is just in front of the co-cathedral, and the bells started to ring. This sound joined our walk as if it was a soundtrack...

If you look carefully to one of the sides, the one on Portales Street, in the upper part of the wall there is a beautiful clock. There are three circles, the biggest one gives the hour, the one on the right gives the minutes and the small one just above gives the seconds, moving stealthily. A detail that goes unnoticed by many, but worth having a look at.
