A city steeped in history, once settled by the Romans, who left behind a wealth of architecture. There is also the Arab influence, creating a combination of cultures that has maintained its essence over the passage of the centuries. This is Calahorra, where a Parador awaits your visit!

The Parador de Calahorra is located in the city center and offers every convenience to make your getaway perfect.

Let's get started!

After dropping off your bags and freshening up a bit, your best option is to take a walk around the old quarter of the city. Highlights include:

  • Cathedral
  • Historic Muslim quarter
  • Roman arch
  • San Andrés Church
  • Plaza del Raso
  • Old Roman forum
  • Municipal museum (Dama Calagurritana bust)
  • Carmelite convent


Day 2: Dinosaur Trail

Are you looking for the perfect outing for a great day with the kids? Take advantage of your stay in Calahorra to visit the municipality of Enciso, home to Barranco Perdido paleo-adventure park and other palaeontological points of interest.This is the perfect place for the children to learn and spend a fun day discovering some of the earliest inhabitants of the planet: the dinosaurs. The park is open during the summer months, so make the most of the opportunity if you're traveling with kids. A perfect day!


Day 3: Wine Trail

La Rioja is a favorite among lovers of enotourism. You'll find countless wineries open to visitors scattered throughout the province. And you won't be able to stop snapping pictures of the scenery during the spring and summer months, when the vineyards make it look as if you're sailing through a sea of green rather than walking.
