San Vicente de la Sonsierra

The largest group of dolmens to be found in La Rioja is located in the sierra de Cameros,
Dolmens are collective funeral monuments comprising a chamber delimited by great stone slabs or megaliths and covered by a mound of earth and stones. The burials were made inside the chamber.

The principal Neolithic sepulchres of Cameros are difficult to access and not easy to locate as they are not signposted. The dolmens can therefore only be visited when accompanied by an expert.

The Dolmen of El Collado at El Mallo has been reconstructed, and is signposted from Trevijano.
At San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the village of Peciña, the Dolmen of “la Cascaja” is located.

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.
