Discover Navarra & La Rioja

Our guide to the local area and best places we've found to stay

Logroño

The nearest city is Logroño, located in the La Rioja region. It is about a 20 minute drive from the Circuito de Navarra. It is a vibrant, typical Spanish city, with a wealth of history.  You’ll find a plethora of restaurants with outdoor seating to soak up the historic charm and bustling atmosphere with a glass of local wine and some tasty delicacies.  It is home to the “Calle del Laurel”, an infamous street lined with lively pinchos (local version of tapas) bars right in the city centre.

Logroño is the centre of trade of Rioja wine, so be sure to sample some or even pick up a treat for your journey home!  You can find more information about Logroño here: www.visitalogrono.com

Pamplona

The next nearest city, capital of the Navarra region, is Pamplona.  It is approximately a 45 minute drive from the Circuito de Navarra.  It is perhaps best known for the Running of the Bulls – the Fiesta de San Fermín – made famous by Ernest Hemingway.  It takes place every July, attracting spectators and daredevil participants from all over the world.  With medieval fortress walls, gothic cathedrals and plenty of buildings of architectural interest, Pamplona offers a rich taste of history, all in easy walking distance.  It has a polished charm.  The Plaza del Castillo square is the heart of the city, surrounded by more bars and restaurants than you could possibly hope for; with everything from casual tapas bars to high end dining.  It is a culinary hot spot.  The Navarra region wine can also give La Rioja a run for its money!
