The Running of the Bulls—Pamplona, Hemingway & the St. James Way

The Running of the Bulls: Pamplona, Hemingway & Historical Tour

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

-The Basque city of Pamplona (Iruña in Basque) is a city famous for two things: Ernest Hemingway called this city home as he was writing The Sun Also Rises, and secondly this is the city where bulls run the streets.

-We will guide you through the winding streets of the old part where Hemingway savored his beloved Rioja wine while he chatted up the locals. We will also point out the infamous path that the bulls run during the San Fermin festival.

-On the tour there is a stop off at the Pamplona Cathedral where you will have the opportunity to see this amazing 13-15 century building. Beneath the cathedral sits remnants of a 1st century BC Roman village called Pompaelo!
