Anyone looking for accommodation during running of the bulls?

by jasminedew19

Hi,

I can't find any accomodation for a solo traveller during San Fermin, but there are some double rooms available. Because it's required to reserve the entire room, I'm wondering if there are any other solo travellers who want to be in San Sebastian for 4 nights begining July 6 to commute to Pamplona for running of the bulls? If anyone wants to split a room with me, please let me know asap!!

I'm a female 28 years old. I'd be an excellent roommate - although I doubt we'd be spending much time in the room with San Fermin going on :)

Hi Jasmine!

I imagine you know it's quite a commute from San Seb down to Pamplona, especially to get there in time for the rocket at 8am. I'm also traveling solo but am not making that distance of a commute every day for the festival, although I do like San Sebastian. This will be my third trip for San Fermin, can't wait Just a thought for your consideration.

Travel Tips for Pamplona

It's not just wild, alcohol induced, bull running

by Roadquill

This is a festival and is very family oriented. Not only do they have puppets, giants, carnivals, but little shows for the kids, such as this balloon show on Avenida Carlos III. There was also a kids train and at a small kids park, the City put out a hundred or so drums the kids could beat on to their hearts content. While not conducive alleviating sangria headaches, the kids were having a blast.

Bullfights.

by breughel

Forum reply :
A few years ago I wrote this about Pamplona:
"The "encieros" of San Fermin i.e. the bulls running through the streets of Pamplona/Irunea constitutes an extraordinary witness of the long-lived traditions of Spain. It is always with interest and emotion that I look at them every morning at 08.00 am on the international Spanish TV between July 6th and 14th.
For sure there are injured persons, mostly among the foreign (sometimes drunken) tourists, but it is a part of the game and it is less dangerous, for oneself and for the others, to run in front of the bulls than to drive against sense on the highway.
But the bullfights in the afternoon following the "encieros" are often mediocre. The public is that of a football match, nothing to do with the aficionados at the corridas of Las Ventas arenas in Madrid or the Maestranza in Sevilla.
I accept bullfighting as expression of the Spanish culture and tradition but I hate bad toreros."

Anybody who has visited Spain in depth knows that ALL fiestas have bull fighting afternoons. Bullfighting is an old tradition of Spain. Other countries have other traditions, sometimes not less cruel than bullfighting.

This year 2010 from 7/07 till 15/07. Encieros at 08.00 h

Monument to the Bulls

by mikey_e

The running of the bulls, or Los San Fermines, is by far the most famous event to take place in Pamplona. It shouldn’t surprise you, then, that the festival is held in pretty high esteem in this city, or that there is a massive monument to it in the city centre. Actually, this is the Segundo Ensanche, so you know that the statue is a fairly recent innovation. Still, it is pretty impressive to be walking along what should be a pretty banal shopping street, only to be faced with a dozen or so charging (metal) bulls and the brave souls who jump in their path. This is a great place for photos, especially if you have someone to take your picture on the statue (or of whom you can take a picture).

The best party even can cost your life

by jlvillalba

"ups, one intruder in the pic!!"

in the san Fermines, all the people of the city leave it during the Fiestas of San Fermin.
and the one millions people from all over the world come here for drink, run the bulls sleep, and then again.
Visit www.sanfermines.com and be ready to meet the 600kilo bulls and how fast they run!!

A popular daily song before 8 a.m.
"A San Fermin venimos por ser nuestro patron, nos guie en el encierro y nos de su bendicion, ¡¡Viva san Fermin Viva!!"
