Laguardia's Medieval Charm

Being so close to Spain's prized Rioja Wine Valley, we're trying to make it around to all of the amazing little towns scattered throughout the province of Alava. This weekend we took a day trip to the hilltop town of Laguardia, a 13th century medieval walled village. It has a fully intact protective stone wall that encircles the entire town, with four entrance gates with massive wooden doors. From just about anywhere on the hill you get wonderful view of the the wine valley below.
