Fortress and Walls of Pamplona, Pamplona

(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Originally constructed in 1571 and improved constantly throughout the following centuries, Fortress and Walls of Pamplona is one of the finest examples of European military architecture in existence. This fortification saw pitched battles from its construction all the way through the Spanish Civil War. The citadel’s impressive fortifications were designed in the style of a star fort. Wander the grounds of the fortress, relax in its shaded parks, climb to elevated sections of the walls for a great view of the city, and visit the art and history exhibits housed within. Be aware that atop many of the citadel walls there are no guardrails, so families with young children should take extra care while exploring.

  • If you go to Iruña an obligatory visit. The bulwark or Ciutadella is a place to go... or go with children... to relax... very careful

  • Well-preserved walled complex that integrates perfectly with the city. A pleasure to take it on a walk delving into its history. Mention apart the Citadel, a fortaleza-parque in the center of the city, you don't expect it and surprise! Perfectly integrated and clean. Visit obliged.
