A Stop on the Road to Santiago
This summer I did my first excursion in La Rioja, a region that was still on my list. One of the things I liked the most was the visit of the village of Nájera, full of history, art an culture, with its magnificent Monastery. But, most of all, I fell in love with the views of the Najerilla River crossing the village.
While I enjoyed the views on the banks of the river, a man came by and asked where I was from. I imagine it is some kind tradition here, since it is part of the Road of Santiago. My friend joined us and the man told us the most incredible stories about the city, its transformations and its past. Afterwards we went walking through the streets of the old part of town and the old Jewish Quarter until we got to the Monastery.
