ESCAPE TO SANTO DOMINGO DE LA CALZADA. WHAT TO DO?
The pilgrimage to Santiago is one of the most important paths in Spain not just because of the religious meaning but also because of its cultural aspect. Santo Domingo de la Calzada is a must during the pilgrimage and for this reason we invite you to spend one night here.
There is a story about this place that keeps visitors fascinated which is about a prisoner, a hen and a judge. The story reads that a man killed another. The judge then states that the only way to determine his innocence was for him to cook the chicken; if it can still fly after being cooked then he is not guilty of the crime. After being cooked, the dead hen started cackling.
The cathedral (Romanesque and Gothic style) is one of the monuments you cannot miss in Santo Domingo de la Calzada. Another important building is the Casa Trastámara, a civic gothic building where the King of Castilla, King Enrique II, used to live. Quite close to the town you have the monasteries of Suso and Yuso, which played an important role in Spanish history because it is where the first documents in Spanish and Basque were written.
If you want to complete your getaway in Parador of Santo Domingo de la Calzada you can book some winery visits in our website. Remember that you are in Rioja!!
