Set in the shopping area. Perfect photo shot if you can get a time when no one is walking past. Lie under the bulls if you dare!

It's slightly outside the center of old town, but worth the walk if you have time. It's not anything spectacular but gives you a feel of the importance of the running of the bulls in Pamplona.

This memorial is located right on a shopping street near the plaza del toros and plaza del castillo. There are some men running with the bulls, which seem determined to be on their way. Very interesting, since few can see the actual event.

If you're visiting this well known city, take a minute to see this nice representation of the Encierro. Unless you're present for the actual running of the bulls, this may be your only chance to take a picture of one. Easy walk from the main plaza.

It is a nice tribute to the running of the bulls, and worth a photo or two it is off the main square and can be a little difficult to find.

This rather unnerving monument displays bulls injuring men as they run down the street in Pamplona. The bulls clearly are willing the contest!

If you could snap a moment during the Runnng of the Bulls, this would be it! It is a bronze work which is 11 metres long and accurately depicts a scene I'm sure is replayed over and over each year. It's a must see.

This sculpture of Rafael Huerta represents the famous Run of the Bulls of Pamplona. Is a piece of work! Nice place to take a picture to remember for ever!

A fantastic monument depicting the running the bulls, which we did not encounter as we were not there at the right time, so it was wonderful to see. I managed to take some fantastic photos, so it must be easy as I'm not pro photographer!

Thank Hannah S
