About the city
Pamplona is the capital and a thriving agricultural center of the independent region of Navarra in Spain. The city is found on the west bank of the Arga River in the fertile region of La Cuenca. The population is almost 200,000 people. The area around the city is mountainous. The highest mountain in the area is Peтa Yzaga, the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 1,353 meters. A large and well-preserved citadel and a large cathedral characterize the cityscape.
The town has a rich history that has left numerous monuments to remember. The medieval center, La Navarreria, is dominated by a cathedral, mostly French Gothic of the 14th century, but with romanesque remains and a neoclassical facade. Also notable is the 13th-century Gothic church in the old San Saturnino district, the House of Accounts from 1364, and the Provincial Deputation with the General Archives of Navarre next door. The center of Pamplona, combining the old with the new, is the Plaza del Castillo with its portico. The town has a variety of museums and higher education institutions. The wide streets are filled with delicious restaurants and entertainment. But the main tourist attraction is the Fiesta de San Fermín, described in Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises (1926). Starting on July 6th, the eve of the saint's feast day, the fiesta continues until the 14th, with daily bullfights preceded each morning by the bulls "running" through the streets behind crowds of dodging men and boys.
The city's ancient crafts-making bellows, sandals, rope, and pottery coexist with the production of metal, kitchenware, spirits, paper, chemicals, flour milling, and sugar. Industrialization created a suburban belt of factories and workers' housing. In addition to its regional industrial importance, Pamplona is a vital communication hub between Spain and France. Pamplona is also famous for the University Hospital de Navarra Pamplona, which, in collaboration with the Cima University (Center for Applied Medical Research) and the Navarra Health Research Institute (IDISNA), is an advanced medical center and research center in Spain, internationally recognized.
The romantic city is worthy of mention in famous novels because great history, Spanish passion, world scientific activity, and great popularity among tourists are combined here.
