• Run With The Bulls


Washington - US

May 28, 2012 - PRLog -- The Feria del Toro has played an important role in Pamplona’s famous Fiesta de San Fermín for more than 100 years. The 8-day Feria del Toro, Festival of the Bull, was a favorite of Papa Hemingway and has been a major draw for the millions of visitors that have flocked to the historic Kingdom of Navarra from around the world since The Sun Also Rises (Fiesta in the UK), was first released in 1926.

Casa de Misericordia de Pamplona (MECA), managers of the Plaza del Toro, and a charity, unique within Spain, has selected the bull ranches, Granderías, for this year’s bull festival. This year’s cartel includes the bulls from Juan Pedro Domecq, Dolores Aguirre, Miura, Cebada Gago, Victoriano de Río, El Pilar, Fuente Ymbro, and for the first time in Pamplona, the Torrehandilla bulls of Joaquín Morales.

Iberian Traveler - Maribel's Guides, in association with Peña Seattle, are offering exclusive hotel packages for Sanfermín 2012. These packages, from 2 to 10 nights, are available at their select 3, 4 and 5-star hotels in the city.

All of the hotel packages include balcony reservations for watching the encierro, the running of the bulls. The VIP balcony program includes a special buffet breakfast following the encierro.

Bullfight tickets are available on a limited basis for those wishing to attend a bullfight during the festival. Seats are located in the tendido sombra (lower level shade) and andanada sombra (upper level shade) in sections 1, 2 & 3.

As part of their services, Iberian Traveler can arrange private transfers from Spain's major airports including San Sebastian-Donostia, Bilbao, Barcelona and Madrid, as well as from Biarritz and Pau in southwest France.
