Sergio Rojo: Pilgrim Hostel
During the last years of the XIX century, this building hosted the Liceo Artístico Literario of the city, providing a stage while the main theatre was being built
Coinciding with the inauguration of the Teatro Bretón de los Herreros, towards the first years of the XX century, the decadence of the Liceo started. Fortunately, the power of the Way of Saint James has saved it from ruin, given that the new owners have found in it the perfect place for exploiting a pilgrim hostel.

Moreover, the restoration of this place has permitted to reinforce the urban links that existed among other Jacobean milestones as the stone bridge over the Ebro, the San Gregorio’s chapel and the imperial church Santa Maria de Palacio, first pilgrim hospice known in Logroño.
The recovering of the main façade, and above all, the original roof, elevated on five centenary wooden trusses are the focal elements of the refurbishment.
