Rioja: A True Sense of Place

There is so much to say about this magical place, but I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking.  We
spent our first few days in Barcelona, then traveled cross country by car to Rioja.  It felt as if we were driving back in time as we approached LaGuardia,  medieval fort where our little hotel was contained.  Once we arrived, it was already dark and we were exhausted but the kitchen was still open (not a suprise in Spain as dinner is typically served at 9pm).  This first meal in Rioja was our most memorable.
