The attraction of Pamplona for many travellers can be summed up in two words: San Fermin.
The walled medieval town in the Navarra region of the Basque country holds the world’s most famous bull festival every year, from the 6th to the 14th of July.
On the first day of the festival, anyone with a fairly loose attachment to their own life is free to dash in front of the beasts as they stampede through the cordoned-off streets, finishing in the bullring, Plaza del Toro.
Pamplona is well worth a visit, bull runs or not.
