Going out for tapas on Calle Laurel in Logroño
Calle Laurel in the capital of La Rioja is famous for its tapas, and is always full of people wandering from bar to bar trying something different in each one. The counters of every bar are covered with little plates, and you’ll see that each bar has its own speciality, some of which have become traditions, like the mushroom tapa “champi”. Of course, there’s Rioja wine, and a lively atmosphere that keeps you wanting more.There are more unusual ways to explore Logroño through wine. For example, you can take part in one of the wine pairings and tastings accompanied by music in the CATARTE programme, or go on one of the narrated walks through the old town centre. These walks tell you local legends about wine, and usually end with a tasting at one of the city’s wineries. And if you’re a tapas fan, other good places to try them in La Rioja include Calahorra and the Herradura area of Haro.
