Pamplona is renowned for its world-famous San Fermin festival, which brings thousands of locals and tourists from far and wide to the city. But this city has much more to offer. Located in the north of Spain, on the banks of the Arga tributary, this monumental city, founded in 74 BC by Roman general Pompey, is on the Camino de Santiago route and boasts a wealth of history and nature. The combination of the two is clear on a stroll through its 16th century city walls, some of the best-preserved examples of military architecture on the Peninsula. Stretching across 5 kilometres, these walls offer the most stunning views of Pamplona and its surrounding mountains. Crowning this magnificent fortress is the Citadel and the Vuelta del Castillo park that surrounds it, making it one of the city’s most emblematic places.
Immerse yourself in nature at the Arga River Park, an impressive green space, spanning one million square metres along the riverbanks, incorporating numerous historical bridges, such as the Magdalena, San Pedro and Rochapea bridges.
The city is home to a whole host of impressive monuments, including the Santa Maria Cathedral, built in the 14th and 15th century, which is the most symbolic monument of Pamplona and houses a cloister that is considered to be one of the world’s best examples of Gothic architecture. Other exceptional religious buildings include the churches of San Nicolás and San Cernín. The latter boasts one of the best and most unique nocturnal views of the city from its towers. The Town Hall, from which the start of the San Fermin festival is announced, and the Palace of Navarre, are two important symbols of Navarre history.
Feel like a true Pamplonan and sample some traditional ‘pintxos’ before taking a stroll through Castle Square and the Caballo Blanco, one of Pamplona’s most charming areas to walk through, located next to San Jose Square and the Cathedral. Comprising the tallest part of the Bastion of Redin, the views from here are considered some of the best in the city, looking out onto the neighbourhoods of Rochapea, Chantrea and San Jorge, and Mount San Cristobal in the distance, with its abandoned fort at its peak.
