La Rioja
Nájera The Essential
Nájera lies along the slopes of a rocky, red-ochre hillock, at the foot of which the River Najerilla runs. A footbridge leads to the pedestrian, commercial and cultural town. The parish church of Santa Cruz tries to impose its 17C façade in a remote enclave; only its dome stands out from the architectural landscape. The Monastery Santa María la Real, meanwhile, comfortably reaches as far as the main square with its chevet.
