Description of the municipality
The first settlers in the Iron Age were the Berones, later followed by the Romans, who gave the village the name of Camprovín, campus pro vinea, meaning ‘fields for vines’.
Indeed, Camprovín is famous for its vineyards, and you will find small wineries that often have underground cellars to store wine.
Camprovín is a reference in the area for its urban art; there are several works of art in the streets of the village.
It can be considered the ‘viewpoint’ of La Rioja, as the views from its high location are of the Demanda and Cantabria mountain ranges and the Rioja Alavesa, the Serradero peak and the Ebro Valley as far as Logroño.
What characterises the landscape is the reddish earth; at the highest points there are beech, oak and ilex woods, with some trees as much as 700 years old. Lower down, pastures with a variety of herbaceous crops, as well as vineyards, olive groves and, to a lesser extent, cereals and fruit trees. Then there is the River Najerilla and the trees along its banks or gullies.
