    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Construction of this church began in 1533 and was accomplished in the XVII century. The main facade faces south at the square. It has two doors framed by columns and covered by two pediments.
    Church was closed and we failed to get in.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Church of Hospital of San Juan de Acre was founded by Dona Maria Rodriguez in1185 to receive and treat the pilgrims walking to Santiago de Compostela. Church was built by Bishop Martin the son of Dona Maria. It was Gothic with some Romanesque detailes and was accomplishes in XIII century. One of the most important archaeological findings was the series of four burial sites. At the end of XIX century church was demolished due to unknown reason. Its main portal and windows were transferred to local cemetery of Navarrete where they remain today. So, when you enter the city you can see the ruins and when you leave Navarrete you can see portal and windows at local cemetery.

    Bodega Don Jacobo

    Behind the ruins of Romanesque church of San Juan Acre you can see Bodega Don Jacobo. This is the distillery producing good local wines. Majority of those wines are available in local shops of Navarette. To my test, wines from La Rioja are the best in entire Spain. Don Jacobo wine was very good although bit expensive.

    Walking to Navarrete

    by Oleg_D. Written Feb 20, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are different ways how to get Navarrete by bus. But majority of foreign visitors are the pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela and they arrive here on their own feet. Some of them come from Pamplona, some from Saint Jean Pied de Port and some even from Paris, Cologne and Worms. When they come here they approach Navarrete from the north east from Logrono. They see wonderful valleys, mountains and vineries of La Rioja. And first that they can see in the city is the church of Asuncion. Church and Riojan wines the best vines in entire Spain greet them.
