July 6 - July 14
San Fermín (Running of the Bulls)
The fiestas of San Fermin are celebrated in Irunea/Pamplona, in the region of Navarra, every year from the 6th to the 14th of July. They have become internationally known because of the running of the bulls, where the bulls are lead through the streets of the old quarter as far as the bull ring by runners.
The fiestas are celebrated in honor of San Fermin, patron saint of Navarra, although the religious aspect would seem to have taken on a secondary role over the last number of years. Nowadays, the fiestas are seen as a mass gathering of people from all the corners of the world and where the partying, the fun and the joy of it all are the most outstanding ingredients.
Each time you’ve watched it on TV, you’ve presumably asked yourself for what good reason anyone in their correct personality would keep running before a pack of irate bulls. The truth of the matter is, hundreds of years prior the “Pamplona Running with the Bulls” began as a component of a standout amongst the most globally famous celebration in Spain; San Fermin. On the off chance that you haven’t had the joy of encountering Spain’s most anticipated celebrations, you should visit Spain for San Fermin 2019.
