Fiestas in Navarra

Los Sanfermines - The Running of the Bull - 6-14 July - Pamplona

In the famous encierro (bull running) six bulls are released early each morning to run from their corral through the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town.

On the last night of this week-long, non-stop party, crowds with candles sing Basque songs in the main square. The event gained worldwide fame after Ernest Hemingway described it in his novel The Sun Also Rises.
