Villalba De Rioja
Description of the municipality
Villalba de Rioja is a village located on the southern slopes of the Obarenes mountains, right on the border of the provinces of Álava and Burgos.
It is separated from Miranda de Ebro by a short mountain track.
The Esperamalo stream, a tributary of the River Ebro, runs through the village.
A notable landmark is the monument to the cyclist Álvaro Fernández, with some verses from María Piedad Mendizábal on it: “If you are lucky enough to ride through my Rioja one day...”
During the hunting season you can find a wide range of species such as partridges, rabbits, quail, hares and roe deer.
