Logroño has a population of 153,000 and is the capital of La Rioja Autonomous Community and has all services. It is a prosperous and lively university city, untouched by mass tourism, and the third biggest city on the Camino Francés. Shops and cafés on the Camino and around Calle Portales which is the main street. Tourist Information office on the Camino, besides dispensing information they can also organise 'educational' visits to local vineyards. Public library (La Gota de Leche) is across the square from the Tourist Information office, Monday to Friday 0830 to 2000 and weekends 1000 to 1400 and 1700 to 2000, free internet access. Supermarkets and fruit and veg market on the Camino on the way out of town (not open at the crack of dawn). Each year on 11 June the city celebrates the festival of San Bernabé, when, to commemorate the resistance of the city against an invading French army in 1521, fried fish, wine and bread are distributed by the Cofradía del Pez / Brotherhood of the Fish, symbolising the food that the people ate during the siege. The week before 21 September is the festival of San Mateo or Fiestas de la Vendimia (Harvest Festival) to celebrate the grape harvest. The main events are the crushing of the grapes and the offering of the first must to the Virgin of Valvanera. Followed inevitably by the usual chasing, and being chased by, livestock. Every year on the last Saturday of April there is a nocturnal walk of 63km, called La Valvanerada, to the Monastery of Valvanera. It has been organised annually since 1976 by the local Blood Donors Association.
