The wine culture is closely related to the town, under whose houses more than 200 “caves” or cellars are excavated. Around the town you can see wineries with more modern architecture. The Tourist Office has a list of wineries that offer visits to its facilities. The cave of the tourist office can be visited.

Mirador portal de Páganos

In front of the door of the same name, the Portal de Páganos is a viewpoint, presided over by a beautiful fountain, several tables, and a photographic panel with which to identify the towns and mountains that are contemplated from it. Ideal place to enjoy the vineyard landscape that the region offers and to understand the defensive character that the town originally had.

If you are in Laguardia at sunset, and the day has been sunny, you cannot miss the spectacular sunsets that this viewpoint offers us.



The town of Laguardia was fortified in the s. XIII, during the reign of Sancho VII El Fuerte, its wall being built with sandstone ashlars and various filling material inside. Four doors communicated the town with the outside: Páganos, Mercadal, San Juan and Santa Engracia. The Puerta Nueva or Carnicerías did not open until the s. XV. Today, and despite the damage suffered in the different wars, it retains its original layout, with a good number of towers, two of them adapted to the new bell tower function.

Plaza del Gaitero

In this square we can see the sculpture set "Travelers" by the artist Koko Rico. Two bronze plates with a set of bags and suitcases in one and shoes in another, in homage to the traveler.

Paseo del Collado

It runs north of the hill where Laguardia is located, outside the walls, between the gates of Santa Engracia and Páganos. At the foot of the land and villages of Rioja Alavesa open, crowned to the north by the Sierra de Cantabria. In the center of the promenade there is a small metal structure that houses the bronze bust of the fabulist Samaniego, a native of Laguardia.
