Pamplona in April – 13-15/100 Camino Photos

Pamplona is one of the bigger cities on the Camino de Santiago route, with a population of around 200,000. The famous running of the bulls in July is what the city is primarily known for, but it has a charm apart from that. Founded in Roman times, it has persevered for centuries.
