About the tour

In 1923 Ernest Hemingway arrived to Pamplona during the San Fermin festivities. Ernest found inspiration to write his first novel "The Sun Also Rises" Mr. Hemingway is the person who made our town famous to the world, and specially the running of the bulls. Today we are going to walk on the streets of the run. We will learn the history behind it and we will also get some running tips (in case you are planning to run with the bulls) Disclaimer: bullfights are protected under the Spanish Constitution as part of the country's cultural heritage. The purpose of this tour is to share this cultural heritage. Running with bulls and bullfights involve treatment of animals you might not agree with. If you strongly disagree with this tradition, we advise you do not watch this tour. If you decide to watch the tour anyway, please be respectful of other people’s opinion as well as the guide.

Francisco conducts such interesting tours of his beautiful home city of Pamplona. This trip was especially interesting as he told us all about the running of the bulls. I learned so much. Brilliant!
