long day today and was planning to stay in Ciruena which is a quite deserted New dormitory town on hard times where it looked like most of the new houses were for sale. It was a bit depressing and wondered how many people does it make to make a community. So keep walking into Santo Domingo de la Calzada a municipality in La Rioja, situated on the banks of the Oja River. Its name refers to its founder, Dominic de la Calzada, who built a bridge, hospital, and hotel here for pilgrims on the Way of St. James. The town’s Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada is dedicated to him and also famous for having live chickens in the church.
Two photos one for Ciruena at 2 and another’s just outside the town.
