The first thing you can do in Pamplona is to visit the Plaza del Castillo. The Plaza del Castillo is the main square of the city. It holds a great deal of history in and of itself and is still known to be one of the most significant places to visit when traveling to Pamplona. 

One amazing sight to behold in this beautiful city is the city walls. Since the Roman times, Pamplona has been used very strategically for Spain.

The Running of the Bulls in Spain is an event in which a herd of cattle, often times around six bulls, are let loose to run free in a section of the city.
