Highlights of a Free Tour in Pamplona

Located in the far north of Spain, next to the border with France, the capital of Navarra was made famous by Ernest Hemingway, who fell in love with the city. But it is a little-known gem with plenty of interesting places to visit. If you are only going to be here for a weekend or less, joining a Free Tour in Pamplona is the smartest way to discover all the essential places in the shortest amount of time. A local guide will take you through the cobblestone streets of the photogenic Old Town, where iconic landmarks such as the Town Hall and Plaza Consistorial are located. The beautiful Cathedral of Navarra, the Church of San Saturnino, the General Archives, the Plaza del Castillo and the 12th century Church of San Nicolas will be other highlights of any tour. The beloved Capilla de San Fermin will be the perfect place to hear about the San Fermin Festival and why the entire city dresses in white and red every July 7.

Things to Do in Pamplona

As you will learn with Pamplona Free Walking Tours, this town boasts one of the most exciting food scenes of Spain! So tourists can’t leave without tasting fried eggs with chistorra, bull stew, ‘ajoarriero’ or cod. If you want to explore beyond the Old Town, Navarra offers lots of attractions to keep tourists busy for days. Just a short car or bus ride away from the old town, tourists can visit the Fort of San Cristobal. It’s a massive fortress built in the 19th century on a strategic point towering over Pamplona, and you will discover how it was used as a jail during the Spanish Civil War. Yamaguchi Park might well be the most surprising attraction of Pamplona. This stunning 85,000 m2 (21 acres) Japanese gardens were carefully designed as an homage to the city of Yamaguchi, evangelized centuries ago by the Navarrese Catholic missionary Saint Francis Xavier. Pamplona is also the perfect spot to plan your exploration of Navarre's superb natural environment: the Bardenas, Bertiz or Belagua.
