Every July a small city in the north of Spain becomes the most important place in the world: from the 6th to the 14th of July, in Pamplona it takes place the world-wide known San Fermines.
The city was founded by Romans back in the year 75bC. and has always been an important urban center as well as the capital of the Reign of Navarra, one of the oldest in Spain.
Also, St James Way passes right through its medieval streets, so the city has been for centuries a meeting point for people from different places.
Pamplona has a very interesting city center and it preserves the 16th century pentagonal star fortifications that protected the city.
In the cobbled streets you will find many restaurants and bars where you can enjoy the local gastronomy and pintxos!
The city has so many charms that no wonder it has captivated visitors from all over the world. Of course, its main ambassador has been Ernest Hemingway, who’s novel “Fiesta, the sun also rises” helped to popularize the running of the bulls.
