Shopping after the corrida
We will be in Pamplona from the 14th July for only a few days, unfortunately after the corrida - What we would like to know is will the regular shops be open on Saturday the 15th and Monday 17th July?
Is anything open on the Sunday 16 July? Bars and eatheries will be, I guess.
Many thanks in advance,
RE: Shopping after the corrida
I guess it depend on what you will be shopping for. Most locals get out of town during that festival. They still will take some time to trickle back in.
The odds that anything besides tourist shops being open are slim. But you can buy postcards, t-shirts, bocas, film/batteries and other souveiner type things at any time.
Travel Tips for Pamplona
People are Political
In Basque Spain, you will see banners for the ETA and are likely to come on a march just about any weekend. We didn't feel uncomfortable at all -- we seem to see political marchs just about everytime we visit Europe, regardless of country. People here wear their political beliefs on their sleeves and, aparently, out their windows too. But then, at times we do too!
Cathedral - cloister
Maybe is the most important part in the cathedral. Also in gothic style, it's said that it's a masterpiece of this style in all Europe.
Anyways, look at light going through the archs, it's really a great place. But well, I'm not impartial, I love all cloisters =)
Paseo de Sarasate
The Paseo de Sarasate is not the main street in either the Casco Antiguo or the Segundo Ensanche, but it forms a sort of border between the two and it is always a good idea to remember where you are in relation to it. It is a long and wide Promenade that is joined with the Paseo de Victoria and that ends at the Parlamento de Navarra and the Monumento a los Foros de Navarra. This is a great place to take a book and enjoy the sunshine – there are a lot of park benches and shade trees, so if you are stuck on a Sunday afternoon with nothing to do, consider coming here to while away an hour or two with a good book. There are also a number of interesting statues along the Paseo de Victoria. The Promenade is named after the composer and violinist Sarasate who was born in Pamplona and, during the latter half of the nineteenth century, composed a good number of pieces based on Spanish folk airs and tunes.
Partys, Bulls and Crazy Times
"Running with the Bulls"
As if I couldn't get enough adventure jumping out of airplanes, partying in Ibiza, and having machine guns held to my head, I decided to combine the rush of each all in one 24 hour period. Running with the bulls was more exhilerating than jumping out of an airplane in the swiss alps, as scary as looking down the barrel of an AK-47 and the party before and after is one of the best I have ever come across. San Fermin is an experince that shouldn't be missed!!!
