The monument of San Fermin captures exactly what this city is about. Every year hundreds of thousands of people flock to the streets to celebrate the festival of San Fermin. You must check it out if your in the city

Fantastic representation of the Encierro. Pamplona's famous bull run. Captures the fear and excitement of an instant in time. You can walk the route of the run and imagine what it takes to run 400 metres with a hoard of wild bulls chasing you. Brilliant

You won't miss this walking around Pamplona - it's a beautiful life-size replica of the running of the bulls. Rumor has it that two people have actually been injured on the monument, pretending they are riding the bulls, because the horns are that sharp! :)

A natural progression to the former statue to the encierro. This is altogether muck larger and more impressive and captures the spirit of the encierro.

Pamplona is a lovely very old town. Very small and very relaxing so much history and evolves around the running of the bulls. WE were there a week after the closing of the running of the bulls which I think was a great time to...More

Quite an imposing work of art, I believe it was done in bronze and time has turned it a magnificent color. Even though it is dark, it shines in the sun, and it is quite an exibit1

This is a well designed monument that is life size. Maybe even a bit bigger. It depicts the mayhem of the Running of The Bulls quite well. Lots of people come here to take pictures with it. It is also directly across from the visitor...More
