Fortress and Walls of Pamplona, Pamplona

4.5
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.

  • It is impressive by well preserved that it is, the defensive structures are perfectly and you can visit him whole. The old buildings now there are art exhibitions. It has very clean public services. We must not pay input, and is surrounded by gardens. From the Fort to the Centre of Pamplona Hajj only 5 min walk.

  • After all these years the fortress is sill live and kicking. It is a very good spot for a walk in historic surroundings. Basically surrounds most of the old city.  more »
