Places in Spain - Pamplona

 

Pamplona (also known as Iruna) is located within the region of Navarre. The city will be best known for the tradition of the running of the bulls which occurs between 6th and 14th of July every year. So far outcries to outlaw this fiesta have failed and each year it attracts half a million visitors.

In the core of the city there is a wealth of history but it has been encircled by modern, high-rise developments. Pamplona became the region's capital in the 10th century and during the reign of Charles III it gained a cathedral.

 

The heart of Pamplona is Plaza del Castillo, formerly the bullring, built in 1847. Today it is the seat of the local government. The elegant tree-lined Paseo sleeps thousands of visitors during the fiesta of San Fermin (the bull running). Here is the busiest spot during the celebrations. Another popular place is Calle Estafeta with its rows of bars and restaurants. Here it is busy all year round.

 

The Cathedral is free to visit although you will pay about 1€ to see the museum. This 14th century building is the most important in the city. At the heart of the cathedral is the tomb of Charles III and his wife Queen Leonor.

When it comes to shopping in Pamplona you will find a wealth of regional crafts.

There are ample places to stay in the city although during the fiesta you will expect to pay up to 4 times the usual rate - if you can find any accommodation. Often it is all booked a year in advance.

 

The city has a wonderful thriving nightlife and all the bars come alive with all manner of food and music available.

Cycling holidays to Pamplona - Why not spend three days in the heart of Pamplona for the San Fermin festival to watch Europe's most dangerous tradition. Join a daily bull run or encierro, or simply watch the frenzy, champagne glass in hand, from the safety of our private balcony.
