If we are looking to start to get accustomed to Haro cuisine, there is no better way to do so than in the bars and cafeterias of Paz Square. We can enjoy succulent bar snacks, good wines, mixed grill platters and the best coffee on any of the numerous terraces in the square.
At the same time, we can enjoy several of our architectural jewels, such as the City Hall, the Bendaña Palace or the El Torreón museum of contemporary art.
Located in the heart of Historical Center since ancient times, it has been a bar area, but its current name would see the light at the end of the 1950s. In this well-known area you can visit numerous hotel establishments hosted by real estate ancestors, including one of them in the building , standing, oldest in the city.
In La Herradura you will be able to taste the typical Rioja cuisine, in its restaurants, and its casseroles, sandwiches, banderillas, pinchos or tapas, as you prefer, as well as the wines of the harvester, crianza or reserve region, at your choice, in the various bars that dot its surroundings.
The route starts at the Santo Tomas Street, in this legendary trail we can enjoy trying out pinchos or tapas, or having sandwiches or lunch in one of the restaurants.
The Herradura route continues in this small square where terraced bars and wonderful restaurants serve the Haro’s most typical dishes. If we wish to continue our cultural visit, we are just a few steps away from the Santo Tomás Church.
And to finish off, to get back to the Herradura, we have to go down San Martín Street with several stop-offs with good food: pepitos (steak sandwiches), zapatillas (toasted bread and tomato with ham) or a pincho moruno (skewered diced pork) will be the finishing touch.
During the day, these streets are all a mixture of scents and flavours, and at night they are transformed into the party area of the city. In its pubs and bars we can enjoy Haro nightlife just as we’ve enjoyed them in the daytime.
