Like many Spanish cities, Pamplona is full of history, and walking into the town and up the ramparts into the old city is no exception. A walk along the city walls, overlooking both old and new Pamplona, is a must do.
There's more to Pamplona than just their Sanfermines (July). I love to walk around its fortress (La Ciudadela) and its walls. There are many hidden places that you can discover and you probably need more than one day to go to the different areas of the Walls.

A well fortified location, a walk around them gives you an idea of the importance of the place. This is a well trodden route for those on the pilgrimage walk.
We were there in april, this year. There was the National Feast of the two Navarras going on. Pamplona has much to offer, certainly, you can sit and enjoy, and you can walk and discover. There is old, there is new.

We stayed in Pamplona specifically because the weather was not forecast to be great in northern Spain, so wanted a city break. Fantastic place, full of history and the walk around the walls is very impressive. Highly recommended and kept two young boys occupied.
