Nice stroll around for photos if you're passing by the area, but not much else as the grounds are quite small. Building itself was closed.

Went to see the Palicio Rioja, but the building itself is closed. Walked around the grounds (not huge, but nice) and got some good pictures. The building appears to be falling apart and might be closed in preparation for renovations.

The Palacio Rioja is an elegant century-old french-style palace with lovely gardens. Built by Alfredo Azancot for banker Fernando Rioja in 1906. It has belonged to the local municipal authorities since 1956, and now houses an environmental museum and a cinema.

A Belle Epoque gem in a lush garden with palm trees. We were very lucky when entering the grounds of the Rioja Palace to meet Marta, one of the docents. She informed us that the Palace would re-open after lunch and she promised us a tour in English. We returned after lunch and Marta did indeed provide a thorough tour... More
