The Opening Ceremony marks the beginning of a nonstop nine-day cultural festival. As the morning progresses, Pamplonicas and visitors alike begin to flood into Plaza Consistorial. It is an exciting morning full of expectation and this is our best event of the year which includes access to an apartment with two fabulous balconies with views directly in from of the town hall and another to the other side of the plaza which is literally packed with participants. The event is at the same level as the town hall balcony event, making us feel like the protagonist. Get ready for our VIP buffet brunch with traditional cuisine and drinks galore, as well as a photo call with a professional photographer who will capture the moment forever. We pop the cava and toast to the beginning of your adventures with us, and your Out of the Box experience with Northern Spain Travel and Heart of Pamplona.

The streets are packed with onlookers awaiting the ceremonial procession that parades along the streets of Pamplona at noon on the 7th of July. This is a fantastic occasion to get a feel for Pamplona’s great devotion for Saint Fermin, enjoy the music bands, the majestic Giants of the city and the entourage of officials, including the mayor of Pamplona marching to the Cathedral to collect the “cabildo”. This is a fantastic time to get the camera out. Our balcony event to watch the procession is for photography lovers who want to capture the moving traditions, the swirling giants, the full-cheeked trumpeters, get a close up of the beautiful dancers with their folkloric costumes, the bright-coloured spectacle is an open invitation to shot a good photo.

The closing ceremony is This takes place in front of the Town Hall, where the fiesta was opened 8½ days earlier. There are other events also taking place in the city, (such as the Peñas gathering in the main square – the Plaza del Castillo, for their own celebration). However, in front of the Town Hall a large crowd gathers to sing “Pobre de Mí, Pobre de Mí, que se han acabado las fiestas, de San Fermín.” (Poor me, poor me, for the fiesta of San Fermín has come to a close). This is a very sad occasion because it is the end of the fiesta, (though many are relieved because they cannot take any more), but they still look forward to next year and even sing “Ya falta menos” (there is not long to go).
