Pamplona, or Iruña in Basque, is a city in the north east of Spain, and served as the historic capital of the Kingdom of Navarre. The city is believed to have been founded by the Roman general and Consul Pompey Magnus when he camped his legions in the area during the winter of 74 BC. Over the next centuries, Pamplona would become a fortress city, and much of its 16th century defensive structures still stand well preserved. Today the city is an idyllic holiday destination for couples and families alike, and Pamplona boasts plenty of historic as well as modern attractions. Finding and booking your ideal hotel in Pamplona can seem like an impossible task, particularly when you have hundreds of hotels to choose from. With a little help from Venere, you can find the hotel well suited to your expectations with the aid of user submitted reviews, photo galleries, and our interactive map of the area.
What's Pamplona Like?
Pamplona is a city with a rich cultural heritage and historical roots, and everywhere you go, you will be reminded of its long past. One of the most dominating attractions in the city is the Conjunto Fortificado de Pamplona (Fortified Complex of Pamplona), the remains of a 16th century star fortress, and its well kept grounds are perfect for an afternoon walk. The Pamplona Cathedral is typical of grandoise Spanish religious structures, and features plenty of stained glass and inspiring sculptures. The La Morea shopping mall is a great way to spend an afternoon if you have the money burning a hole in your pocket, as you can choose from a selection of big name brands as well as local specialty stores.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Pamplona
Pamplona enjoys a oceanic climate, which causes warm summers with cool breezes, and chilly yet not too unpleasant winters. The summer months last from July to mid September, and afternoon temperatures average at around 28°C, although it has been known recently to exceed 40°C. During the month of July, the city is overcome with the famous running of the bulls event during the San Fermín festival, so be aware during this time as it can be dangerous. If you want to stay away from the bull running, you will find that the rest of the city is quiet, so will be the perfect opportunity to explore the medieval city streets without the hustle and bustle of other tourists. If you plan on taking a day trip out of the city, the Pamplona Railway Station connects to Madrid, Zaragoza, and Barcelona.
