The Bodega Finca de los Arandinos Hotel, is located near the city of Logrono (14 kilometers) and at 30 minutes drive to Haro or Laguardia.
South of Logrono, Entrena has a small population of barely 1.500 inhabitants. Most of its land is used for cultivation. The Church of San Martin and the Convent of Santa Clara are two places of interest. Entrena, in close proximity to Logrono, is a good starting point for the wine and Monastery Route we propose in our Route selection in La Rioja. The Monasteries of Yuso and Suso, both World Heritage sites, are located in the San Millan de la Cogolla village, in the valley of the Cardenas River. The Monastery of Suso was the first one to appear, it originates from the caves where the hermit disciples of San Millan lived in the 6th century. Entrena is also relatively close to Najera, Fuenmayor, and other touristic attractions.
From Finca de los Arandinos you can take advantage of the proximity to go and enjoy the bars and taverns on Laurel Street in Logroño. Entrena is a good place to include in a short trip of La Rioja, due to its closeness to Logrono and other very interesting places. The stretch of St James’ Way which goes through La Rioja is very close: you will find the Pilgrims’ Hospital in Navarrette, the San Anton Hill, which offers a panoramic view of Najera and the Najerilla river valley and the Monastery of Santa Maria la Real where a long time ago the Pilgrimage to Santiago was promoted.
It can be interesting for you to get information about the festivities in La Rioja (we have added a link below in our section about festivities in La Rioja for your information). Some of these festivities are related to wine, or to other themes, for instance, the traditional festivities of Semana Santa (the Holy Week), which although not as popular in La Rioja as they are in the south, are still worth seeing.
