San Fermin fiesta
Immortalised for all eternity by Hemingway in his novel "The Sun Also Rises", the San Fermin fiesta is Pamplona and all of Navarra's most internationally famous celebration. At midday every 6th of July, the rocket marking the start of the fiesta is launched from the town hall balcony and with it the city is launched into a frenzy of joy which does not end until the "Pobre de mí" (Poor old me) on the 14th. The city is transformed into an explosion of life in which visitors and residents merge, all dressed in the red and white that pervades the streets, as they get carried along by the music and the spirit of the outdoor fiesta. Over nine days, everyone has the chance to enjoy the rituals and customs that make the San Fermin fiesta special. The running of the bulls is without doubt one of the highlights. Every morning, the runners test their nerves and physical fitness as they are chased by the horns of a herd of wild bulls.
