Alfaro

Alfaro is located in the region of La Rioja, in the north of Spain, washed by the waters of the Ebro and Alhama rivers. Stroll down the town centre and discover churches and palaces with centuries of history, witnesses of the ancient splendour of the area. Visit the Abbey and Abbey Palace (18th century), and San Miguel Collegiate Church, a Baroque masterpiece from the late 17th century. The archaeological site in Eras de San Martín is also worth visiting, as is the Ninfeo Romano, a Roman water system.

Besides, Alfaro has an incredible colony of storks, the world's largest stork nesting on one single building. Over 400 storks have chosen San Miguel Collegiate Church for building their nests. Watching this number of storks flying through the air is an unforgettable experience. If you like going on outings, don't forget to explore Sotos del Ebro Nature Reserve, as well as Mount Yerga. Furthermore, during the San Roque celebrations in mid August, the town fills with fun and music for several days, together with parades of "giants and big-heads", bullfights, cultural events and cuisine competitions, amongst other activities.
