La Casa del Cofrade is the first WINE CELLAR - HOTEL
in La Rioja that was originated in the premises of
Bodegas Vinícola Real in Albelda de Iregua village, only 15
km of distance from Logroño, the capital of La Rioja
Albelda de Iregua's History goes back to
X century. In those days, San Martín of Albelda Monastery
had already been built, it was as important as the famous
Yuso and Suso Monasteries in San Millán de la Cogolla.
In San Martín Monastery, it was said that
there were round 200 monks, that's why the mark par excellence
of Bodegas Vinícola Real´s wine is "200 Monges",
with "g", because of old writing. In this Monastery was done
the famous Albeldense or Vigilano Codex,
whose pictures we have based on to named the Hotel rooms,
examples of them are "La Rosa de los Vientos", "La Cruz de
los Ángeles", "La Tentación" etc...
