R2 – Day 2: Logroño – Najera 29 km

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. After about 2 km you will begin to walk through open parkland, then through beautiful vineyards over soft hills and valleys to your first stop Navarrete, a 12th-century town, built by the ‘Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, with its 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 favourite, however walking through vineyards is impressive.

Your final destination is Najera built on the banks of the river Najerilla, along its banks, you will find the Monasterio and Iglesia de Santa María La Real constructed in the 11th Century.
