Calahorra

It is in the suburb, on the banks of the Cidacos River, guarded by the Bishop's Palace and Paseo de las Bolas.

Origins. Several churches had previously been built on this site before. Renovation started on the former one towards the end of the 15th century and was not completed until 1900 with the placement of the high altarpiece, since the previous one was destroyed in the fire of the 13 June 1900. A large Atrium precedes the Cathedral. In the centre of the floor, the rose of the winds.

The façade: Baroque for some, neoclassical for others, built by the Brothers Raón at the end of the 18th century. It is conceived as an altarpiece of three bodies in a triangular pediment.

It is original, you must go down a few steps to enter it, perhaps because the previous churches had a doorway at the level of the river. When there was flooding in Cidacos, the Cathedral would be flooded and this, together with the building of the road or bridge, led to protection being built, raising the doors. This would explain these steps.

As soon as you enter the Cathedral, you are facing the Retablo de los Reyes, rococo-style. It consists of one body, three sections and a top section. Medallion of the Epiphany, relief of St Jerome and Cristo de la Agonía (which is carried in procession at Easter) are the works of Bazcardo.

Logroño

The Church-Cathedral of Santa María de la Redonda is located on one of the city's main streets, Calle Portales, built on the site of a 12th-century oratory. Work began in the 15th century, being extended and reformed until the 18th. The main facade is sculpted like an altarpiece and closed by a large wrought-iron fence. The towers, known as "las gemelas", (The Twins), an example of the Baroque style in La Rioja, are related with others in La Rioja due to their designer, Martín de Beratúa.

divided into three naves separated by large cylindrical columns and ambulatory. The most representative elements are: a picture of the Crucifixion of Christ, attributed to Michelangelo; the tomb of General Espartero and his wife, Dña. Jacinta Martínez de Sicilia; the exceptional wrought iron railings closing the side chapels; and the Santo Sepulcro (Holy Sepulchre) in the Chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles, with splendid details in tortoiseshell, filigree silver and wood.

Santo Domingo de la Calzada

The cathedral is a stupendous model of proto-gothic architecture. Organised like a typical pilgrims' church, it has three naves, the central one of double width and higher, crossed by the transept and with a girola which originally would have had three apse chapels. In the early 12th century it was enlarged to convert the temple into a fortified church, the only example of this type we can see in La Rioja. The main altarpiece is a gem of Spanish Renaissance sculpture and a work by Damián Forment. The cathedral has a Romanesque end with 12th century reliefs and capitals, including a rigorous relief of David, as the psalmist king.

Inside, what most catches your attention is the hen house in which a rooster and a hen live as a reminder of the miracle of the hanged pilgrim.
