Located right in the heart of the province of Navarre in Spain, the city of Pamplona is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. This is mainly due to the popular Run with the Bulls held through the streets of the city of Pamplona during the Festival of San Fermin. Here, thousands of locals and even visitors gather along the plaza square between the 7th and 14th of July each year. At exactly 8 o’ clock in the morning, tens of bulls are released to charge to the gathered crowd who literally run for their lives through the 825 meters through the street from the corral of Santo Domingo, where the bulls are kept and ends to the center of the bull ring. The Bull Run during the festivities of the Festival of San Fermin has made it one of the most unique, and dangerous, festivals celebrated all over the world.
But it is not only the Bull Run that has made Pamplona a favorite destination for tourists from all over the world. The city is rich in its historical and cultural heritage.
