Municipal pilgrims’ hostels in La Rioja
The Way of Saint James enters La Rioja through Logroño. During three stages, pilgrims cross the landscapes of La Rioja on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Twenty-four days of more than twenty kilometres each lie ahead.
The pilgrimage to the tomb of the apostle Saint James is a spiritual journey, but it also involves physical effort. That is why rest is essential to reach the goal and avoid injury.
The pilgrim who wants to live the experience in an improvised way can decide where to spend the night once you reach the end of your stage. However, it is advisable to know the accommodation options, ranging from 4-star hotels to shared rooms.
