Capital: Pamplona

The feast day of San Fermin, patron saint of Pamplona, is a red-letter date in the Navarre Region.  Ever year, during the entire week of 7th July, the streets of its capital are thronged each morning with tourists from around the world who have come to see the running of the bulls, made world-famous by the American writer Ernest Hemingway. 

At any time of the year, Navarre’s artistic heritage can be a good excuse for visiting this region.  Castles like those of Olite and Javier, the cathedrals of Pamplona and Tudela, the historic city centres of the capital, as well as of Estella and Sangüesa—all enable the visitor to get a clear idea of Navarre’s architectural riches, whilst travelling through the different ecosystems making up the region’s varied landscape.
