In 2009 we did a road trip around Spain starting in Madrid then visiting Burgos, San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Laguardia, Santillana del Mar, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Pamplona, Zaragoza and the finishing in Barcelona.
Laguardia is a town and municipality located in the southern province of Álava, in the north of Spain; it belongs to the region of Rioja Alavesa, in the Basque Autonomous Community. It has a population of 1500; but in the past it had 2500.
Set atop a hill in the middle of a valley is the picture-perfect town of Laguardia. This walled town is surrounded by vineyards on all sides and offers a glimpse into the region’s wine making past. A few of the wine cellars located under the town houses are open for tours and are a definite must see.
Founded in the 10th century as a defense town for the kingdom of Navarra, this beautiful walled town is located in a hill overlooking the vineyards, with the Cantabrian Mountains in the background. It is without a doubt the most known, but also the most attractive, town of the region. Enjoy the walk through the medieval narrow streets and stop at one of the multiple bars to try some local wine accompanied by a ración or a pintxo.
We had a wonderful dinner at the Restaurante Hotel Posada Mayor de Migueloa right in the middle of Laguardia with large chunks of beef and some great local wine.
