San Ignacio church

When the Jesuits returned to Logroño in 1899, after the suppression of the Society of Jesus at the end of the 18th century, the town council of Logroño gave them the church of San Bartolomé as a place of worship and the Jesuits bought an adjacent house to found the community. With the passing of the 20th century, the location did not allow for the expansion of the school or the community, so it was decided to buy a new site on which to build the current parish church of San Ignacio and the attached school.

In the parish church you can stamp the Ignatian Way credential and visit the interior decoration, which contains motifs referring to the spirituality of the Spiritual Exercises, as well as to the Jesuits. It is worth recognizing the vibrant work of social commitment in education, solidarity and youth, as well as their work to promote the values and life of St. Ignatius of Loyola, which since the early twentieth century developed the Jesuits in the capital of La Rioja.
