1. Lodging

Haro offers many fine and varied accommodations, from luxury hotels to charming apartments, rental homes, and bed-and-breakfasts, without forgetting its best-camping facilities. The complete scope of accommodations our Eroici deserves to delight their stay in La Rioja. Go to visit Haro Tourism website to book your stay. Nearly villages such as Santo Domingo de la Calzada (20 km from Haro) and San Vicente de la Sonsierra (11 Kms) complement the lodging offering of Haro to guarantee a very comfortable stay to all participants and friends.

2. Bars and restaurants

Not only previous editions participants asked for more and better on-site accommodations, but they also insisted on the furnish of a much larger offer of bars and restaurants. Haro will fulfill the expectations of the most exquisite gourmet. Starting with its many bars and restaurants terraces in the main place, no doubt that you will have many opportunities to cherish friendship around the nicest wines and most delicious La Rioja gastronomy.

4.  Santiago Ways

This new home base allows us to revisit the routes itineraries and increase the Way of Santiago sections, something of great value for all riders looking for tradition and legacy. The modifications in the Long, Medium, and Short routes will bring you closer to the pilgrims and make the ride even more meaningful.

5. La Rioja    

 The relocation of our home base in Haro reaffirms our compromise with La Rioja, its villages, and its habitants. No other region in Spain would provide us and our Eroici with such a rich, varied and delightful scenario for our Spanish classic cycling event. La Rioja is our great and wonderful home and hopefully will remain for many more years.
