Church of San Miguel, Cuzcurrita

Location: on the main square of the town, 11 km far from Haro and 51 km from Logroño.

The church of San Miguel, in Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón, is a Baroque church with three naves, constructed in golden ashlar masonry in the late eighteenth century and situated in one side of the Plaza Mayor, next to the River Tirón. Its most notable feature is the curvilinear façade, Italian-inspired. Above this nice façade a tower with columns, capitals and pinnacles rises. It has similarities to other church towers in the region whose style is often framed as "Rioja Baroque".

The interior of the church has arches and neoclassical altarpieces. It was declared a national monument in 1978.

The municipality of Cuzcurrita also includes two chapels: Tironcillo and Sorejana. It’s worth highlighting Sorejana, two kilometers away from the village. It was built in the thirteenth century in late Romanesque style and it was extended with some Gothic parts in the fourteenth century. It houses a valuable baptismal font from the twelfth century.
