As soon as you leave Estella you will find Bodegas Irache, a wine museum where you can taste the Rioja, the famous wine of the region.
The rest of the day you will pass through vineyards and farm land. Along your route you will pass through the village of Azqueta and Villamayor de Monjardin. From this village on, you will not find any other village for almost three hours so make sure to stock up on water and essentials before departing Villamayor de Monjardin.
You will then reach the small town of Los Arcos that has all the amenities you need. Many pilgrims choose Los Arcos as their stop for the day but this means the next day they will take a 28.5 km walk to Logroño.
The small village of Torres del Rio is located another 8 km away from Los Arcos. Here you will find an old Romanesque church
From Estella you can go in this stage either until Los Arcos like you will see on the first map or you can continue to Torres del Río. In this case please consult the next map Los Arcos to Logroño though Torres del Río.
