Azofra has a long tradition of hospitality: in 1168 Lady Isabel founded a pilgrim hospital, with a church of St Peter and a cemetery for pilgrims who died on the “Camino”. The hospital operated until the 19th century but nowadays there are no traces of it. On the way out visitors can stock up with fresh water at the Fuente de los Romeros spring.

A little bit further on is the Rollo monument, also know here and in other parts of La Rioja as “picotas” and “cruceros”, were pillars erected to serve as signposts on roads and at crossroads, But they are also believed to have been used to punish lawbreakers, this one was erected in the mid 16th century, and formed part of the stretch of the Camino de Santiago between Logroño and Santo Domingo de la Calzada, which here passes through extensive vineyards.
