Recommendation by Lemi
The “Running of the Bulls” (Encierro), another Spanish trademark, actually began because competing animals had to be transported to the arena. Sprint with the bulls from Corrales de Santo Domingo to the Pamplona Bullring in Spain’s biggest encierro! During the San Fermin Festival (every year from July 6 to 14) in Pamplona, narrow streets are fenced off. Show up at the corrales before 7:30AM because as soon as 8:00AM hits, the bulls are let loose and the run is on! Anyone, even tourists, over 18 years old is allowed to join. It gets dangerous, and accidents are prone to happen, so proceed with caution! Participants rarely go the whole 875-meter stretch since each section of the course presents its own challenges. The bulls charge out of the pens at full energy, making the corrales one of the riskiest points to start from. Safety buffs should stay behind the fence. It’s still close to all the excitement, without all the risk.
