SAN FERMÍN FESTIVITIES
San Fermin festivities is an iconic holiday that takes place in the northern town of Pamplona.
The festivities occur annually in mid-July. The best-known aspect of the holiday is the Running of the Bulls, first made famous by Ernest Hemingway in “The Sun Also Rises.” Thousands of locals and foreigners take to the streets each morning to sprint in front of a stampeding herd of bulls along a route leading to the city’s bull ring.
The streets become treacherous, and the event is astounding to behold. Aside from this spectacle, the Fiesta de San Fermin includes parades, fireworks and bullfighting events.
