San Fermín in Pamplona: balconies and bullfight tickets

The balconies to watch the bullrun 2017

To follow the Encierro in Pamplona (the Bullrun, as it has been somehow translated) there are only two options: from a balcony or from the street. In the second case “to follow” is definitely the most appropriate word, because very soon the bulls will overtake you (hopefully without leaving any trace) and from that moment, yes, you will officially follow them. Safer, and probably more comfortably, you can follow the bullrun from a balcony. I have the best balconies in Pamplona, to “be there, but without the crowds” at all the relevant spots of the track for the Running of the Bulls 2017. While it’s impossible to see the whole track from a given spot, there definitely are locations which are more spectacular than others: the bend between Mercaderes and Estafeta (some refer to it as “Dead Man’s Corner”, which no Pamplonese will know what it means) and, of course, the very start in Calle de Santo Domingo, where the runners chant to the Saint just moments before the bulls are released. And if you are thinking about Calle Estafeta: this street is a quite long one, it’s much better to be higher up rather than lower. It’s just about the “quantity” of the action you can see from your balcony. The bullrun is extremely fast… On Estafeta, unless you are soon after the bend with Calle Mercaderes, the higher the better. Trust the local wisdom… I have been renting balconies during San Fermín for seven years now: with many Spanish friends in Pamplona, I spend quite a lot of time in town all year round… I know something about it. Prices for the balconies to watch the Running of the Bulls 2017 start from 60€ per person, and go up to 140€ for the -by far- best viewpoints in town.
