Captive Navarra, nature, desert, water and pure air. The History of a King is still present in landscapes, towns, castles … Gateway to the Camino de Santiago, millions of Pilgrims enter Pamplona on their Jacobean route through the Magdalena Bridge, a Medieval bridge. Olite, Tafalla, Puente La Reina or Roncesvalles, dream places in Navarra.

Baroque palaces, medieval churches and all this while we enjoy a good pintxo in one of its bars.
And from July 6 to July 14, Pamplona becomes the capital of the world, with the meeting of different cultures, the city that welcomes and does not make anyone feel strange. The people of Pamplona have an open and participative character, hospitable, what we ask is that you participate in the party, making it yours, but with great respect for others.
The festival of San Fermín is found in every corner of the streets of Pamplona, 12,240 minutes, 204 hours of joy and unique experiences. Since Ernest Hemingway, fell in love with them and immortalized them in 1926 in his book “Fiesta” (The Sun Also Rises) the Nobel Prize, the North American journalist and novelist transmitted that joy to the whole world, and nobody wants to stop “Living some Sanfermines in your life “
It is the Bull Fair – It is one of the main axes around which the Pamplona festivals revolve. Created in 1959, the world’s first fair to dedicate an award to the best bull each year. A different bullring, the bull and bullfighter merge in the joy of the festivities. El Tendido del Sol, where the party coexists with bullfighting.
You are going to live the previous days, days where the excitement of the preparation of the festivities is experienced in each house, days with a great Pre-Sanferminero atmosphere with the local people.
