Unfortunately I can't attend the actual running of the bulls, but this is the next best thing! Great photo opportunity in the most famous of Navarra locales. Worth a visit.

I'm not a huge fan of sculpture but this one was different. It captures perfectly the mood and atmosphere of the runners and the sheer power of the bulls. The whole thing seems to be on the move. Wonderful and well worth a viewing.

It is an interesting sculpture near the bull ring. It gives you sense of the energy and excitement that is part of the event. It is worth a quick stop either before or after your visit to the ring.

Al encierro is a sculpture of dramatic scenery during the bull run. Sitting pretty in the central Pamplona shopping district. Very figuratively, it provides a great photo opportunity. Not sure if it is also top notch art in the eyes of connoisseurs though.

Wonderful sculpture that evokes the passion and emotion of the famous "running with the bulls" - very dramatic and atmospheric - a Pamplona must see!

close to the plaza de toros you will find this pictoresque monumento. The challange will be to take a pic of yourself evading all the tourists around you.

Worth a look, lovely monument. Not difficult to find just near bull ring - if in doubt ask staff there.

If you are remotely interested in the Fiesta de San Fermin, you will go to see this monument. Nice photo op, nothing more. The signs around it specifically ask you not to climb on it. Most people ignored the sign.
