Haro, La Rioja, is known for its fine red wine. Every year the Haro Wine Festival is held where locals hold a wine battle. It has an important architectural heritage, including the main entrance of the Santo Tomás Church, by Felipe Vigarny, numerous palaces, and the old town. Apart from its role as home to many of the great bodegas in La Rioja, one of Haro's other claims to fame is that it was the first town in Spain to have electric street lighting.
Logroño is the capital of La Rioja, Spanish wine region par excellence. It is also a stop in the Camino de Santiago and a historic commercial centre. A must here: A glass of wine + a tapa of "patatas a la riojana" | Pic: https://500px.com/photo/66305023
