Ernest Hemingway put Pamplona on the map by describing the famed running of the bulls. One can see the encierros (bull running) during the Fiesta de San Fermín, held each year in July. The non-stop party atmosphere is spiced up by fireworks, Basque flute concerts, and a variety of wine tasting or vineyards. Once a fortified city and the capital of the ancient kingdom of Navarre, Pamplona is more than a one-event town. One of Spain’s greenest cities and a former bastion of the Roman Empire, Pamplona is just as much worth a visit during the remaining fifty weeks of the year for its history and modern art museums, its open recreational spaces and its glorious religious monuments.
