Private tour of Pamplona from San Sebastian with 3 course meal

1 review
All our tours will respect Spanish social distancing rules at all times and the guide will wear a mask in closed spaces. <br><br>Pamplona is a city with a lot of history to tell, magnificent arquitecture, culture and exquisite gastronomy. <br>Pamplona is also host to the world famous bull race that takes place through the streets <br>of the old quarter up to the bull ring. <br>On this experience we will replicate the race step by step and after we would also discover all the best highlights of this city with an expert guide. <br>Pamplona has a medieval fortress called “la cuidadella”. This fortress has some very interesting history that I will share with you while we walk through it’s gardens, surrounded by its enormous walls. <br>A traditional Basque 3 course meal is included in the highly reputed Cafe Iruña.

I absolutely love this church. It's well lit and spotless inside. It appears to have been recently restored. It houses the chapel of San Fermin - the patron saint of Pamplona. Unlike so many of the other churches, visitors can go right up to the huge gold and silver effigy of San Fermin. The priests office is just behind the effigy - I found him to be welcoming and friendly and more than willing to stamp visiting pilgrims credentials.

We came across San Lorenzo Church a couple of times during our walks in the historic centre of Pamplona, as we were staying in a lovely hotel closeby. The church building is not really a great architectural achievement, but it is nice enough. At least if you have seen as many churches as we have then you would understand... However this church is quite special. The locals certainly seem to think so. The reason is that the Chapel of San Fermin is inside San Lorenzo Church, and San Fermin is the saint people really adore more than others. He is associated with the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona and his image holds a special place in the chapel. It's a wood-sculptured image dating back to the 15th century and it is said to contain an actual bone of the saint! The red cape covering the image of the saint is supposed to protect the runners during the running of the bulls! The saint's statue is paraded annually during July, during the celebrations. As for San Lorenzo himself, he, too, holds a special place in the hearts of the locals. He is said to have been burnt, or barbecued, by the Romans, for his beliefs, which is why he is represented holding a grill! Definitely this church is worth checking out, at least for its interesting history.

One of the few churches which are open during the San Fermin Festival. Personally, this just intensified the 'value' of Capilla de San Fermin. I was fortunate enough to (unknowingly) visit the church while the choir was performing - an amazing experience!

Lovely church on the edge of the historic center of town. There is a side chapel with the statue of San Fermin in it. This is the statue that they parade around town, and the chapel is highly desirable as a wedding site. The interior is suitably ornate, with a quite air of solemnity about the entire place.

Solemn. It was a needed place of quiet and prayer during our walk on The Camino. During the day, whether AM or PM, we gave thanks for our safety and strength.
