La Rioja

La Rioja is an autonomous community of Spain located in the north of the Iberian Peninsula.

It covers part of the Iberian system in the south. Geographically it is divided by 7 rivers that descend from the mountain to the Ebro, which vertebrates the region.

The northern area, the valley, has a Mediterranean climate and the south, the mountainous, one more humid and continental.

Traditionally it is divided into three subregions from west to east, following the course of the Ebro: La Rioja Alta, La Rioja Media and La Rioja Baja.

The community is uniprovincial, there is no deputation and it is organized in 174 municipalities.

The capital and city with the greatest number of inhabitants is Logroño. Its population is 317,053 people.

It borders the Basque Country to the north, Navarra to the northeast, Aragón to the southeast and Castilla y León to the west and to the south with the provinces of Burgos and Soria.

It is well known for its production of wines under the Rioja Designation of Origin, the oldest in Spain, making some of the most internationally renowned wines.

It is also one of the most important paleontological territories in the world in terms of Ichita sites that stand out for their number and conservation.

Its monuments include the monasteries of San Millán de la Cogolla, considered medieval center of culture and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.
