Yes you come to Pamplona for the running of the bulls. Been there done that. Not a whole lot more around here than chasing scaried cattle. This was a pretty cool statue that I had my picture taken with.

The monument is located right in the centre of town. As far as statue type monuments are concerned this is one of the best around.

The sculpture is very impressive as it is a life size depiction of the bulls and those that choose to run with them. I viewed the sculpture before my run, and there are all of the elements involved: the thrill, the danger, the sheer terror,...More

What a beautiful monument. We came to the San Fermin this year and felt as though it really captures the spirit alive in Pamplona and this crazy, age-old tradition.

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
