If you head here on your visit to Pamplona you can get a good taste of all the región has to offer. Lovely cafes and bars line the sides of the square and within a short walk you can visit the bull ring walk the city walls visit the cathedral ,cloisters etc and have genuine pinchos in the narrow streets that radiate off the square. A must visit for seeing and experiencing life in the city.

I visited Pamplona for a few hours and I was in Cafe Iruna in Plaza del Castillio to find the traces of Hemingway .I appreciate the old charm of Pamplona ,in May the town and the plaza was sleepy .The square owes its name to a castle raised in this place in the 14 th century .Initially it was used as a market place and for fiestas ,later it became famous for bullfights .I had a cup of coffee in Cafe Iruna and I stayed on a bench admiring the old arhitecture of the buildings ..

Nice square probably the largest in the city. Lots of restaurants and a big band shell in the middle. Great place to people watch. Great parking directly underneath the square.

Large Square in the center of Pamplona. It's quite busy and therefore it seems nicer than many other squares of the same type. If you're in Pamplona have a stroll around it.

Its a romantic quarter that introduces you into a Hemingway novel! They have the original coffee where Hemingway used to hangout but well it was not our favourite detail of that quarter. We encourage you to visit it so you get all the feelings about entering into a novel!

This is the place to people watch!! Everyone walks and plays in the Plaza each evening and especially on weekends. If you're lucky enough to be there on a holiday, expect folk dancing, parades, and concerts. Restaurants circle the plaza, ranging from medium to high priced. Look for local eateries off the plaza for better deals.
