ESSENCE OF PAMPLONA

AT FIRST SIGHT

Our Essence of Pamplona tour offers private walks through the lovely, winding Old Town of Pamplona and out for pintxos and drinks for a late-morning lunch, or early dinner. While we explore this fascinating historic city, we will stop to devour the most delicious food Pamplona has to offer.

THE ITINERARY
Summary

Our time begins with a welcome drink at a sophisticated and private 1920s gastronomy club, directly above the gilded, ornate Café Iruña, where Hemingway once sat observing the passersby. We then move on to visit any number of beautiful spots – the Cathedral where the kings of Navarra are buried, or the plummeting fort walls. We marvel at the architecture that transports us to another time. We may spot hidden Roman ruins. We trace the route of the infamous bull run and have a look at the imposing bull ring. But most of all, we eat, we drink, and we enjoy the festive, unique Pamplonican atmosphere. 

If the timing is right, once a year, the master chefs of Pamplona compete for the prestigious yearly gastronomy award, and the city is overflowing with heavenly pintxos, as the winners share their creations with the public.
