Alfaro, the beautiful city of storks at the edge of Rioja Baja

Visit to the East most tip of La Rioja to see the city of Alfaro- famous for its storks- Ciguenas as they call them. The eggs are currently hatching so you might catch a glimpse of the young ones. This region of La Rioja is considered Rioja Baja and it much warmer than the northern areas like Rioja Alta y Alavesa.

There was a Baroque exposition called La Rioja Tierra Abierta held in the main church where they exhibited beautiful dresses and styles typical of this era in Spain.
