Jornadas Medievales 2024

With June comes an unmissable annual event in Briones, the Jornadas Medievales 2024, a festival declared of National Tourist Interest and one of the celebrations that we most feel and live in the village.

Our town, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, precisely because of the urban and architectural legacy left by the Middle Ages in our streets, experiences on June 15 and 16 a real journey through time, Walking its streets and thanks to a thorough characterization of the brioneros and brioneras rediscover ancient professions and traditions, roam our streets carters, falconers, scribes and archers, among many others. You can also witness a sword fight between Castilians and Navarrese, a witch hunt by the Holy Inquisition, see children’s games typical of the time, meet lepers and vagabonds. A spectacle worthy of witnessing that takes us to live a very unique and magical festive experience.

For two days and within the extensive FESTIVITIES PROGRAM you can enjoy the art of pipers, minstrels and medieval games, as well as concerts and dances.

At Hotel Santa María Briones we live this celebration with illusion and pride. Our sixteenth century mansion is a listed building for its high historical value, a clear example of the architecture of the time that is part of this set of medieval buildings, in fact the defensive wall of Briones is integrated and preserved in our building.

For this reason, every year  in our restaurant Allegar we design a SPECIAL MENU transferring  own techniques of the time to the cuisine of author, as the methods of conservation of the Calados Riojanos adding us to the experience and celebration. It is precisely in the “Calados Riojanos” where we offer a second gastronomic proposal with typical Riojan dishes.

The Medieval Days add to the attractions offered by La Rioja Alta in June. From wine tastings and winery routes, the natural beauty of our landscapes, the kindness and good character of our people, the authenticity in our way of life, the dips in the Ebro, the route through the viewpoints and historic buildings… In addition to the incredible gastronomic offer of the region.
