Parque Natural Urbasa Andia

Reviewed By Mauibeth - Kihei, Hawaii

Because of an injury, I was unable to walk the trails, but the drive was lovely. The Mountains were majestic, with wonderful formations and flora. We enjoyed the sheep in the fields, and the horses in the road, as well. We drove/walked a couple of the villages on the south end and they were quaint and sweet.

This park offers a beautiful and relaxing walk with many green parts, works of art, and many happy dogs ? It also has many benches along the way to simply indulge yourself in the tranquility of the place.

Fortress and Walls of Pamplona

Reviewed By kingduncan81 - Pudsey, United Kingdom

We walked through the castle from where we'd parked the car, and whilst it was impressive that it was so well preserved, it was mostly just one large open space, and was quite dull.
The walls were more interesting, with good views as you went round the city.

Pamplona Catedral

Reviewed By Hermes_NL - The Hague, The Netherlands

The Pamplona Catedral comes across as very serious, clearly the seat of an archbishop. It is immaculately maintained and comes across stern rather than playful such as some other churches in the city. The graves of a medieval king and queen in the middle of the church are particularly noteworthy.
We were not able to pay the entrance fee of 5 euros per person since there was nobody there to accept our payment.

Iglesia de San Saturnino

Reviewed By Bardangas - Athens

Here you get two in one: a meta gothic and an 18th century uninspiring iglesia. The wooden floor and gilt iconostasis, the two in one perpendicularly fixed. The noise and fragrance, the hispanidad that provided a lot even for a Mexican Reading render this monument unique in all respects.

Town Hall

Reviewed By Olga B

Town hall is a beautiful old building in the way to everything in Pamplona. When we were there they were celebrating Gay Movement Week or something and Madrid was the hostess to lead it and all the Town Hall is Spain had the Rainbow flag and at night the rainbow lights. Pamplona 's town hall looked beautiful. In front they have Concerts and the running of the bulls pass right in front.
Quite a place to see

Plaza del Castillo

Reviewed By Hermes_NL - The Hague, The Netherlands

We were lucky to visit Pamplona and the Plaza del Castillo during San Fermin Pequeno in late September 2017. The Gigantes (big dolls of the parade) used the opportunity of some space to perform a little dance together, very entertaining! The parade started on Sunday 24th at about 17:30 and reached the Plaza at about 19:00 hours.

Strolled outside the Old Town(Old Quarter) of Pamplona and came across the modern city of Pamplona with large buildings and modern shopping complexes.Cycles and motorcycles were parked along the street and cycling was very popular among the tourists.Took a photo at the Monumento al Encierro Statue dedicated to Sanfermoines(San Fermin) festival.This stature with bulls and human runners running together with a few runners falling in the process describes the annual Pamplona San Fermin festival of "Running of the Bulls".

Parroquia San Lorenzo

Reviewed By Mypace - Zurich, Switzerland

We got there just before closing time as we returned from La Taconera Park. The Chapel of St Fermin has tremendous sentimental value. The figure of the saint is placed there. People stand by and get a picture taken for good omen.
The geometrical interlinkages of the domes and the lantern of the large roof are the highlight of the church.
