Pamplona is internationally known thanks to the festival of San Fermines. Thousands of people come each year to experience the thrill of its popular bull running, immortalized by Hemingway in his book “Fiesta”. Apart from the world-famous festivity, Pamplona offers really interesting architecture projects that are worth seeing.
For nine days, everyone dresses in white and red costumes, Pamplona inhabitants and outsiders are driven by the festive spirit that invades the streets of the city.
However, Pamplona is much more than that and it is worth a visit while enjoying the festival. Architecture and urbanism shake hands with folklore and it is possible to see the city in all its glory, when the streets are filled with visitors.
The capital of Navarrais a city with parks, monuments and unforgettable places that has also managed to incorporate contemporary buildings in its urban fabric. Enjoy a perfect combination of architecture and tradition in Pamplona.
