Pamplona's Old City and Taste Food & Wine from Navarra!
Enjoy a walking tour in Pamplona’s Old City, get to know about Saint James Way, follow Hemingway’s footsteps and walk the streets where the Running of the Bulls takes place. Afterwards taste some specially selected local wines and artisan food.
The walking tour will begin in the area occupied by the Cathedral of Pamplona. This burgh, (the old name for a city) Navarrería, has been inhabited since the 5th century BC due to its strategic position over the river. You’ll discover the origins of Pamplona and the Saint James Way (El Camino).
In City Hall square you’ll learn how three old burghs or cities were subdivided until Pamplona was finally unified as one city in 1423 by King Charles III. The City Hall was built on the spot all three cities intersected!
We’ll walk the old streets where the infamous Running of the Bulls takes place each year, and will hear about the San Fermin festival’s origins, history and traditions.
After the walking tour we get to taste some specially selected local wines and artisan food. During the tasting you’ll hear about local varieties and wine-making techniques in Navarra and the Rioja regions. After the wine tasting, you’ll experience some quality, tasty local food for lunch.
We need a minimum of 4 people to be able to run these tours.
