About 16km southwest of the village of Najera, you’ll find the delightful and little-known hamlet of San Millan de Cogolla. This tiny village is home to only a few hundred people, who understandably believe that it’s the most beautiful place in La Rioja. Set in a lush, verdant green valley, the views are utterly spectacular. And like Najera, San Millan de Cogolla has a long and fascinating Jewish history that dates back to the 10th century AD. However, most visitors come here to see two remarkable monasteries that helped give birth to the Castilian language. On account of their linguistic heritage and artistic beauty, that have been recognized by Unesco as World Heritage sites. A must-visit part of any Rioja itinerary.
