Every July 6th the "Txupinazo" -a rocket that soars into the sky from the Town Hall balcony marks the beginning of the Sanfermin fiestas. A wave of happiness sweeps over the entire city. The celebrations or fiestas in honor of St Fermín –the patron saint of Pamplona- take place between July 6th and July 14th..
The Sanfermines are celebrated from July 6th to July 14th. If you want to get into the swing of things, you should really book a cheap flight to Pamplona some time ahead of the celebrations.
It is a week of non-stop celebrations with enormous amounts of alcohol consumed. Street celebrations last 24 hours a day from the all night parties to the 8 o´clock running with the bulls. Crowds laugh, chat and enjoy themselves in Pamplona, where you feel just like everyone there, dressed in white with a red handkerchief tied round your neck. The locals and visitors are just one happy family for the whole week.
These fiestas are world famous ever since Hemingway wrote about them. Untold thousands tourists flock to the city to run –like the locals- with the bulls.
Tradition has it that running with the bulls started in Pamplona because the fighting bulls had to be driven traditionally to the main square where the bullfights were held. Then young men from the city and surrounding villages would run in front of the bulls enjoying the thrill of a very risky activity. This became so popular that it has lasted to modern times; the only difference is that there are many more people taking part.
The running with the bulls through the historic city Centre takes between 2 and 3 minutes if all goes well. The event places Pamplona on the international stage and the city take pride of place in the media. A celebration which began as a commercial fair in the 13th century, has evolved into an uninhibited celebration. Come and join the fiestas! Discover things you didn´t know about the celebrations and leave your comments about what the fiestas meant for you.
