Fortress and Walls of Pamplona, Pamplona
(4.5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Place to be missed if you are in this city. The ramparts are all around the city and gives rise to a walk.

  • Best way to enjoy the medieval walls is to stop for a drink at the Mesón del Caballo Blanco in the north east corner of the old city 
  • How pamplonés wander the walls very young dsde; on the side is the Vuelta del Castillo, the green lung of Pamplona. If you come to see the walls, I advise that you seek your history, which is linked to the city. Inside there are exhibition halls, the bus station is on the side; you have the old the old Iruña 5 minutes walk
