The book suggests educating the eye to discover historical and architectural aspects that everyday life prevents us from seeing


Logroño, An Illustrated History of the City is an educational contribution to learning how to contemplate the city: the origins of its name -which means sacred place in the Berone forest-; its medieval wall; the Inquisition; daily life in the village; intra-history, definitively contributing to a sense of citizenship.
We propose giving meaning and value to what surrounds us on a daily basis. We aim to promote knowledge and esthetic taste, enjoy the architectural jewels that surround us, and relate history to the traditions we faithfully carry on, year after year, such as the Festival of San Bernabé.

Readers' attention will move from the text to the images, and the images to the text, motivating a search for information throughout the city.
