San Fermín in Pamplona: balconies and bullfight tickets

El Chupinazo! San Fermin Opening Ceremony 2025

July the 6th, noon. The most intense -and crazy- moment in San Fermin. It’s more dangerous to be in front of the Ayuntamiento at this time, for the Opening Ceremony, rather than as the bulls run (I think so, really). The white of the t-shirts quickly becomes pinkish because of the wine being sprayed all over: Plaza Consistorial (Ayuntamiento) becomes fuller and fuller: it’s very difficult to cross it at 10:30am already, and definitely impossible to approach it without getting “invited” to some wine, which will inevitably land on your clothes. Once the square is packed, the crowds start to push themselves, and you will see “waves” being produced: the only reason why nobody falls to the ground, thus seriously risking his/her life, is that there is no space to fall down, so full is the square in a bath of sweat, wine, excitement. Attending this very peculiar Opening Ceremony is one of the kind, and it must be from a balcony. The ceremony peaks with a small rocket -the Chupinazo- being fired from the balconies of the City Hall (Ayuntamiento) façade: at that time the square will literally shake, goose bumps are guaranteed. I have the best locations to follow it all live -but in full safety and comfort. We offer very good brunches in all apartments, with quality wine, beer, water and soft drinks as refreshments. Prices to follow the Chupinazo, San Fermin's Opening ceremony, start from 150€ per person.
