NH Toro is a well-worn hotel, but there is a statue of Running Bull in front of the hotel.
Checked out of the hotel, I headed to the Old Town of Pamplona by taxi. The views of the city on the way was beautiful.
I arrived at the bullring (Plaza de Toros) first and took a walk to the House of Bishops (Palacio Episcopal).
From the bullring, take a stroll to Bishop Palace through a pedestrian bridge.
Palacio Episcopal (Palace of Bishop), the facade is splendid.
The Bishop Palace of Pamplona was built in eighteenth century in Baroque style.
After the Palacio Episcopal, I am going to the cathedral (Santa María la Real) through some quiet alley.
Catedral de Santa María la Real (Cathedral of Saint Mary the Royal)
The Gothic and Neoclassical church was built as a result of the collapse of the former Romanesque cathedral in 1389.
The mderate neoclassical façade, contrasts with the magnificent Gothic interior, where the 28-metre-high central nave is home to the fine tomb of Carlos III of Navarre and his wife, Eleanor of Castile.
The upper left picture is a presbytery canopy and the right is the image of Santa Maria on the new coach and in the mantle of the coronation. The Mediaeval kings of Navarre were crowned here and some of them were also buried.
The real jewel of the cathedral is its cloister, considered one of the most beautiful structure among the Gothic world, it is certainly worth seeing.
After the sanctuary, I move to Ayunta-miento (City Council) through some routes of the Running of the bulls.
I have seen this house on TV, news of the festival of San Fermin. And then leave Ayunta-miento (City Council) for Iglesia de San Saturnino (Church of St. Saturnino).
The 13th-century church of San Saturnino (or San Cernin), the patron saint of Pamplona, was the religious heart of the borough of the same name.
This Gothic church with its two high towers is one of the most emblematic silhouettes in the city.
The church has the beautiful and spacious single nave, shouldn’t’ miss the Baroque Chapel of the Virgen of Camino, Lady and Queen of the city.
In the third century, Saturnino, the first bishop of Toulouse (in southwestern France), founded a Christian community and being martyred contributed to the settlement of Christianity in Toulouse.
Exited the church of San Cernin, I went to the church of San Lorenzo.
