Café Iruña

The bar with a more traditional nature in the city.

You can't leave Pamplona without visiting Café Iruña; a place where you breathe history, which is located in the square 'Plaza del Castillo' since 1888 and was the first bar in Pamplona to have a supply of electricity. Large windows give way to its romantic interior of wooden furniture, marble tables, mirrors and chandeliers, where the writer, Ernest Hemingway, spent many days and is now honoured with a bronze sculpture inside Café Iruña, as if he was still supported by the corner of the bar. The restaurant still has the original decor nowadays, which is like a trip back in time as well as a wonderful terrace with a view of the square. Despite its location, which makes it seem like an expensive restaurant, you'll be surprised by the daily special menu (except dinners on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays), which offers an unusual fixed price of 14 euros.
