Environment´s information

The first written reference to Elciego in from 1067, in the"Cartulario of San Millán de la Cogolla", in the form of the Will of Aznar Díaz de Zieko. At the beginning of the XII century it was one of the hamlets dependent on Laguardia, although the people of "Il Zieko", "El Zieko" or "Zieko" did have some rights. This was the case until 1583 when it became a town in its own right, consolidating its position through the XVII and XVIII centuries in all respects, social, religious, architecturally and town planning. The XIX century represents the most important period for the development of wine making with the arrival of a stream of influential people as described in many documents of the time. So it continued until the XX century when the land gradually passed to the ordinary people.
TO GET THERE:
Elciego lies in the south of La Rioja Alavesa, between the Sierra Cantabria and the river Ebro. The accesses by highway are good and you can arrive up to here by:
AP-68 Basque-Aragonese Freeway: exit nº 10, Cenicero, to only 6 km of Elciego.
N-232 Zaragoza-Logroño: like the previous one also happens through Cenicero.
A-124 Vitoria-Logroño: the crossings towards Elciego are in Laguardia, Leza and Samaniego to 6, 8 and to 9 km of the villa and correspond with the A-3210, A-3212 and A-3214.
