The heart of the towns of Navarre.
Pamplona is located at the very centre of the provincial community, as the cultural and gastronomic nucleus of Navarrese geography. The city can boast being one of the greenest areas for parks and gardens in Spain, maintaining the balance between progress and sustainability with its open spaces. Proof of this are the Ciudadela Park, the Media Luna with the monument to Pablo Sarasate and La Taconera, with a monument dedicated to the tenor, Julián Gayarre.
One of the places of most interest for visitors to Pamplona is the bull running monument, a tribute to the San Fermín festivities, as well as others of great cultural value, such as the defensive walls surrounding the city and the Gothic Cathedral dedicated to Santa María, where King Charles III of Navarre rests.
Essential on your visit to the city is wandering around the old town, with its shops, cafes and restaurants, where you can visit the churches that make up the city centre and try the best pinchos and tapas snacks in its streets, such as Calle Estafeta – well-known for its central role in the San Fermín bull running festival.
Being a city, it is very well surrounded by small towns that preserve their own pieces of history: in the stone of medieval bridges, Romanesque churches or in landmarks of great artistic interest, such as the Jorge Oteiza Museum. One of the star Romanesque temples in Navarre is the Church of Santa María de Eunate in Muruzábal, while the Noain Aqueduct is a significant architectural example of the Enlightenment.
These municipalities in the Pamplona Basin are also good places to practise rural tourism, leisure activities and excursions related to the towns, such as hiking, cycling, horseback riding, quad biking and many other adventure sports.
