“Nice building”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

A building that stands out in the narrow streets of Pamplona. Right next door to the tourist information booth. Town hall did not look any different from many others across spain and would not go out of my way to see it.

“Streets where the bulls run”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

One of the best things to do while living in Spain is to visit each city's old part of town or the casco viejo's. Came to visit Pamplona in particular to walk the exact streets where the bulls run. While doing so, you walk right by the Town Hall, which is a small building that really stands out among the rest. Pamplona in itself is not as painteresque as other Spanish cities, but has it's character thanks to the Rulling of the Bulls festival.

DAY AND NIGHT IN PAMPLONA:
MOVABLE FEAST
By Zoran Slavic



Since our friends said the nightlife is also popular in Pamplona, we had to experience it. We started with the "Marengo". This is probably the most famous nightspot in Pamplona. Moreover, were going to end up in the Cafeteria El Molino. This bar is situated at Barrio San Juan, which is a well-known area in the city for having the best nightspots. However, since it was Wednesday, when the extension is not working, that we missed. Lunch on the second day of his visit was to restaurant LANUEZ. Polished. Politely. Kindly. The high level. We ate "steak tartar." It was juicy, very fresh and seasoned spicy. I had the impression that the preparation is quite orthodox, and then the meat has to be pierced with a knife.
A friend of our friends from Bordeaux, Diego resident, while we walk undulating streets, tells us: The American writer Ernest Hemingway was actually the first "spread the word" worldwide an extraordinary story about people and bulls racing. Residents of Pamplona and have previously enjoyed themselves in the century’s gladiatorial ritual, which in time became a world tourist and media attraction. Every year, young men and other men, in ecstasy before the bulls are running, also razigranim.And routinely lived in the picturesque, but a straight line and slightly sidelined provincial milieu of Spanish regions with strong Basque origin. On the other side of the high Pyrenees, a different limes of Europe. When I decided to at least walk around the famous street through

Simple, even monotonous work, until one day something was tore off. The bulls are chased people who went before them. This is repeated a few more times. Until it became an event. Well planned and organized. It all turned into a challenge. What is the 13th century was noted down as the first special event. In the days when we celebrate Saint Fermin.

To take a break from the Bulls and the attraction of the night, we were fasting Museum de Navarra. Moreover, it was worth it to come to this building, which has numerous prehistoric archaeological remains, along with novel items, Romanesque and Moorish art, Gothic and Renaissance works, there is also a collection of paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as canvasses by 19th century Artists from Navarre. Finally, let me mention that in addition to the building have repeatedly profiled with us and decorative at the same time oddly paced facade excited again. City Hall, The Town Hall, which was built on what was once a moat at the point where the three historic defensive systems in the city came together. It was destroyed on two occasions-the last in 1951 - but its emblematic facade remained intact. This building is significant for its position from the balcony whose, of his second floor, central launches choppiness that begins the festival of San Fermin. In 1423 King Carlos III ordered the construction of these premises.
