Long Description:

Logroño is a municipality in the north of Spain and the capital city of the autonomous region and province of La Rioja. It is also the region's most populated town (almost half of region lives here) and its financial, cultural and service centre. The River Ebro crosses Logroño and the town has historically been a place where paths cross, such as The Way of St. James. The town's borders have also been disputed and were fought over by the ancient kingdoms of the Iberian Peninsula during the Middle Ages. The town's population has increased slowly, but significantly, during the last century in comparison to neighbouring towns. This has mainly been due to the migration of people from other districts in the region. In 2012 it was the Spanish food capital.
