Autumn is an ideal time to wander the hills and valleys of La Rioja. Everything is tinged with red and yellow thanks to the beech forests and vineyards. If what you like is enjoying the landscape and nature, we suggest some special places for their beauty, their surroundings or the fun they offer visitors. To begin, you should visit the Sierra Cebollera Nature Reserve. This reserve starts from the Sierra de Cameros and has some curious landscapes, a chapel with ancient traditions, like 'the charities' and even a park of sculptures made with landscape components. The best way to start your visit to the park is to visit the Interpretation Centre, located in Villoslada de Cameros. You will learn about the natural wealth of the reserve, its flora, fauna and all the secrets it hides. After passing through the Nature Reserve Interpretation Centre, you can choose to visit the Transhumance Interpretation Centre, which explains the importance that this cattle practice had in this area of ​​La Rioja or go to the pretty village of Ortigosa of Cameros and visit its tourist caves. Try searching for a poodle among the stalactites and stalagmites! You can also request information at the interpretation centres or the Cameros Tourist Office to visit a unique natural area that is close by, the Puente Ra waterfall. Water is the protagonist in this environment. Make sure your camera is ready because all the pictures that serve in this area will be eligible to appear among your favourites. Going back towards the capital, we suggest you go off the main road to visit the Camero Viejo. This is ​​the least populated area but it retains all the charm of small mountain villages. The road turns into a succession of bends, bordering the grand canyon created by the River Leza. Do not miss the climb to the village of Trevijano, hanging over the canyon, from where you will see griffon vultures flying. You can stop in the town of Soto de Cameros, where the famous Soto Marzipans everyone here has at Christmas are made. Ask any local what the Almazuelas are. You will be surprised by the abundance of colour. To complete your visit to Cameros, we suggest some sports tourism. The opportunities in this area are many: hiking, biking, 4x4, canyoning, caving, paragliding ... Do you dare give it a try?

La Rioja can be an adventure for children. Where else are they going to find dinosaurs, castles, windmills, waterfalls and adventure?Start by discovering the oldest animals on earth. The dinosaurs left their tracks in La Rioja thousands of years ago and can still be seen. Can you imagine your hand within the footprint of a dinosaur? Try to see who leaves the biggest impression.To understand the lives of these animals, how they left their tracks and above all, how the tracks have survived until present day, you have to visit Barranco Perdido, a complete palaeoadventure park where children can pretend to be explorers and families enjoy themselves while learning. In Enciso and other locations around you will discover most of the finds, life-size replicas of animals and the most curious stories: a struggle between dinosaurs, a whole family, a lame dinosaur... Yes, oddly enough, you can see all this in La Rioja.Wine can also be fun for children, who cannot drink it, but they can learn how the must is made, taste it while their elders taste the wines and admire the enormous wineries with their stainless steel tanks that look like spacecraft, play among the vineyards, learning how grapes are picked, how the vines are cared for... The possibilities are many and children love to behave like grown-ups in a grape juice tasting session and learn how grapes turn into wine... a mystery, isn't it?But family fun does not stop there. Did you know that La Rioja is full of castles? With famous battles and everything, like Clavijo Castle, where Santiago appeared on his famous white horse to win the battle.Between castles and monasteries you can live medieval tales of princes and kings, like the King of Nájera - Pamplona, who was hunting one​ day when he spotted a dove that led him to a cave in which he found an image of the Virgin Mary, a bunch of lilies, a bell and an oil lamp. In that same place he built the Monastery of Santa María la Real de Nájera and if you visit it with children you can enter the cave at the back of the pantheon where the kings are buried.La Rioja is full of medieval legends, such as the hen that crowed after being roasted in Santo Domingo de la Calzada. In the cathedral there is a chicken coop with live chicken and cock who crows for visitors.Also hiding in a forest in La Rioja there is the small monastery of Suso (almost a shrine) where centuries ago the first words were written in the Spanish language and also in Basque, on the margin of a book written in Latin, like a side note written on a textbook.If you're looking for adventure, what you need are sport activities: snowshoes, bicycles and horses among the vineyards, hiking picking blackberries or other wild fruit... What seems most fun?Also in La Rioja you can have fun while learning, in the Interpretation Centres (transhumance, bee-keeping, snow, celtiberian, the groves of the Ebro), by visiting a wind- or water mill, by playing in the House of Sciences or enjoying activities at the Vivanco Museum of the Culture of Wine or family visits to the Würth Museum of Modern Art.You thought that the children would get bored in La Rioja?

Alone at last !, the two of you, enjoying the food and wine, to reacquaint yourself with your partner or even to finish your conquest: Welcome to La Rioja! Where stories always have a happy ending.

It has a geographical, climatic and landscape homogeneity that gives it a very high environmental value.
