Iglesia de Santiago el Real, a temple born from the ashes of its predecessor

Known as the Church of Santiago, construction began in the 16th century to replace the previous temple which was destroyed by fire. It stands in Barriocepo Street, located on the Camino de Santiago and where it shows us, in a single nave, chapels in its buttresses and an octagonal head of five panels with a crypt. In this way, we find a beautiful building that many pilgrims pass through.

Located in Logroño, it is the oldest church of origin. Its construction was finished in 1527, finishing then in the only central nave and whose Renaissance doorway is the work of Juan Raón. It is, therefore, a holy place that was born from a terrible fire, but that over the years has maintained its imposing presence to give shelter to pilgrims and a place to marvel at its spectacular art.

Of course, this is a striking point of interest for those pilgrims who travel the French Way and the Northern Spanish Ways. It is, without doubt, a very popular place both for visitors who walk the route and for those who enjoy the beauty of the old buildings. In addition, we find a reminder of the Apostle, so it is a unique place for those who want to make the most spiritual journey.
