If there’s one thing this region is known for internationally, it must be the San Fermín bull-running festival which takes place every July in its capital, Pamplona, and attracts thousands of people who flock to the city to have fun. However Navarre is also home to many fascinating natural attractions. In this area of Spain, you’ll be able to explore several nature reserves and visit the Pyrenean mountains, the ideal setting for horse-riding or mountain bike routes.
Don't forget either that Navarre lies on the famous Way of Saint James pilgrim route, and is home to places with interesting cultural resources such as Javier castle, Tudela cathedral, the collegiate church of Santa María de Orreaga-Roncesvalles, the church of San Pedro de la Rúa in Estella, or a large part of the historic centre of Pamplona.
Lovers of good food are also in luck when they travel to Navarre, as this is a land which offers typical garden produce such as tender lettuce hearts from Tudela and asparagus, and delicious dishes such as lamb “al chilindrón” and the milk pudding known as “cuajada”. Going out for “pintxos” is another popular tradition that you’re well advised to try: this involves moving from one bar to another sampling delicious miniature versions of local gastronomic specialities.
