You will learn everything about the bullfighting, running of the bulls, all in and outs of the whole event, and enjoy an awesome view from the center of the ring.
Medieval Citadel
After this exciting visit, we will enjoy a relaxing walk through the medieval citadel to see the best defensive monument of the Kingdom of Navarre until Napoleon entered without a fight. It has been considered a strategic enclave to dominate the passes from France to Aragon and Rioja.
Buildings, Monuments & Castle Square
Later we will visit the monument to the running of the bulls, which is a very realistic bronze sculpture, the neoclassical building of the Palace of Navarre and Gayarre Theatre, the sculpture of Charles III the noble and the beautiful Castle Square where the castle of the Kingdom was in the 14th century.
Cafe Iruña - Ernest Hemingway
We stop at this gorgeous square for lunch where Ernest Hemingway ate and drank many times at the historic navarrese Café Iruña, where you can enjoy a décor that has not changed since its founding in 1888, with its period lamps, wrought iron columns and large mirrors. Stunning!

After this break, let’s visit the town hall square where starts the famous Saint Fermin in 6th of July, the impressive baroque facade of the town hall, the spot where begins the running of the bulls, the gorgeous gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria la Real with an amazing neoclassical facade, the most medieval quarter of the city and the stunning lookouts from the walls .
