Pamplona is the capital city of the Autonomous Community of Navarre, in Spain, and historically also of the former Kingdom of Navarre. Pamplona is also the second-largest city in the greater Basque cultural region, composed of two Spanish autonomous communities, Navarre and Basque Country, and the French Basque Country.
Founded by the Romans and crossed by the Santiago Way, Pamplona is globally known as the headquarters of the international San Fermin festivities. But more than just a fiesta, today the capital of Navarre is a modern and welcoming city where visitors can enjoy many attractions: strolling along the centenary city walls and cobbled streets; relaxing in the parks and terraces; trying some of the delicious pinchos in the bustling old part of town; visiting historical monuments; shopping; going to see first-class shows, or watching traditional sports such as pelota. What’s more, its central geographic location makes it the perfect starting point for getting to know the region’s major landmarks.
