Day 10: Logrono to Najera
Before leaving Logroño pack some snacks and plenty of water in your backpack. You have 13km before you arrive in the next town Navarrete, with very few opportunities to stock up in between.
The first part of the day is spent walking out of the city, as in Pamplona. After about 2 km you will begin to walk through open parkland and through beautiful vineyards. Then over soft hills and valleys to your first stop Navarrete, a 12th-century town, built by the ‘Knights of the Holy Sepulchre. Here you will find the fabulous Baroque Church of the Assumption of Mary.
Today is long yet not very challenging. You face two moderate mountain passes, Alto de la Grajera and Alto de San Antón, with several sections close to the highway, not a Pilgrims favorite. However, walking through vineyards is impressive.
Your final destination is Najera. The town is built on the banks of Najerilla river. Along its banks, you will find the Monasterio de Santa María La Real constructed in the 11th Century.
