SURROUNDINGS

FINCA SEÑORIO DE RIOJA, is located in the Sierra de Alcarama, Igea and Cornago. There is scant information about the origins of this town. Some scholars are inclined to think that the word “Igea” may be derived from Basque, as the area was peopled by Basques after the conquest of the Romans, in which case the name would mean “Home”.

Igea holds the most important civil building in La Rioja: The Palace of the Marquis of Casa Torre dates back to the 18th century and was built in the Florentine style.

Igea is a small town in La Rioja Baja, known for years for its palaeontological finds (dinosaur footprints, fossils and more) distributed across the municipality. More than 3,000 dinosaur footprints have been listed to date.
