The Saint Bernabe Fair was in full swing in Logroño. Buskers and fair-goers dressed in medieval and regional costumes were out in full force. Stalls were everywhere, with huge cheese wheels and delicious regional sweets on sale. The streets were thronged with families out until midnight. Rick Steves in his book on Spain says Logroño is skippable, but we found the fair to be great fun.
We also visited St. James Church, where Josemaría Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, worshipped and discovered his vocation.
In our photo today, notice the bagpipes. Evidently bagpipes are historically an instrument of this region.
This was a rest day, and we needed it. James is feeling really poorly with his cold.
Steps Today: 6,760
