Sojuela

In the middle of a pine forest on the summit of Moncalvillo lies an ice treasure. We are talking about an Ecomuseum in the mountainswhere five snow wells were built at the end of the 16th century to supply ice to the city of Logroño. A history of snow and ice that you can discover at the new Centro de Interpretación de la Casa de la Nieve de Moncalvillo, Visitors' Centre at the Sojuela Town Hall.

Sojuela

The Sojuela golf course —18 holes, par 72— is located very close to Logroño and enjoys excellent views. A varied, compensated course, with tees on high ground to facilitate the view of the hole.

Torrecilla en Cameros

El Centro de la Emigración Riojana (Centre for La Rioja Emigration) has been designed to commemorate the past emigration phenomenon of La Rioja, which reached its culminating point between 1930 and 1950.

Content
This space is the result of a rigorous work of collection and classification of materials donated altruistically by La Rioja Centres and many of the protagonists of this history. The Centre also has documentation, information, and various articles collected for various exhibitions, such as‘El viaje de los sueños’ (The Dream Journey), which has been adapted for its dissemination in the Centre.

Origin of the Centre
The phenomenon of emigration, which constitutes a key to explaining the most recent history of La Rioja, is still a living memory. For the creation of the Centro de la Emigración Riojana, the testimony of those who one day had to leave their homeland in search of a better future has been essential.

When choosing the site for the Centre, the decision was taken to select a town that had lived this sociological phenomenona intensely. In its days, the Sierra Camarena saw how many of its inhabitants had to leave, but, today, it has become the focus of numerous visitors.

These two realities coinciding in space but separated in time have made Torrecilla en Cameros the ideal site for the Centre. The building chosen for that purpose corresponds to the ancient Church of the Convent of La Purísima Concepción de San Francisco, in Plaza del Coronel Urrutia, n. 1.

Once renovated, the building consists of three floors. On the ground floor, there is a hall-reception and a central and a side room for the main exhibition. On the first floor is a multi-purpose space and a cyberlibrary, and on the second, a multi-purpose room that includes a documentation area and a library.

Exhibition
The exhibition project is designed to bring to the public in general this complex reality and contains material related to the following aspects:

       The reality of the society of La Rioja at the end of the 19th century and early 20th, time of
the greatest wave of emigration. This section analyzes the sociological reality of the moment with the personal and family reasons that made them take the decision to migrate.

       The vicissitudes of the journey to different destinations of emigrants from La Rioja: information about the means of transport used, time taken, etc.

       The host societies. Information on the reality that La Rioja emigrants found on arrival at their destination (mainly Argentina and Chile), the creation of associations of La Rioja migrants, etc.

       The contribution of migrants to La Rioja. Actions of the so-called"indianos" in civil works in La Rioja. Own architecture and other material and sociological contributions.

Tricio

It is the most ancient religious monument of La Rioja. Its origin was a 3rd century Roman mausoleum, which was transformed into a Christian basilica in the 5th century, reusing architectural elements from the ancient Roman city of Tritium Megallum, Tritium the Great, which comprised the current towns of Tricio, Nájera and others.

Under the basilica floor 5th and 6th century early Christian tombs were found, as well as some reused Roman sarcophaguses belonging to I to III centuries AD, and other medieval ones; in addition to Roman funerary stelae and another Paleo-Christian one. At the top remains of late 12th century Romanesque paintings can be seen, repainted over the original 5th century early Christian ones.

The building has a basilical structure with longitudinal floor plan with three naves and a quadrangular head. The side naves are separated from the central one by arches supported by Corinthian columns made up of fragments of 1st century Roman columns. In the 18th century the interior of the basilica was covered with Baroque plasterwork. The original carving of the Virgen de Arcos, a pre-Romanesque black Virgin, from the 11th century, is now in the parish church of Tricio.

Ventosa

The Church of San Saturnino de Ventosa is on the top of a hill where the village centre is concentrated. Built in ashlar with a Latin cross plan and a rectangular head facing east, it has a single nave. At the foot, attached to the North façade, it has a square tower crowned with an eight facet pyramid, which was built in the 17th century in brick, on the previous ashlar stone base.

Its main altarpiece consists of a predella and two sections divided in five vertical parts, completed in the early 17th century, work of the architect Martín de Nalda and the sculptor from Arnedo Antonio de Zárraga, dedicating mainly the first section to San Saturnino and the second to the Virgin Mary; we must also highlight the representation of the Holy Trinity at the top and the Four Evangelists on the base. Among the religious images of worship, we can highlight: the 14th-century statue of recumbent Christ, Saint Roque (16th century) and St John the Baptist (18th century).
