From Iglesia of San Saturnino, I’m going to Iglesia of San Lorenzo through San Francisco Street.
Building “The Farm” and Escuelas Municipales (Municipal Schools) on the square.
From 2005 the palace is the Conservatoire, “Profesional de Musica Pablo Sarasate” Pamplona.
Pablo Sarasate (1844 – 1908) was a famous Spanish violinist and composer of the Romantic period. He is Basque, born in Pamplona.
Iglesia of San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo, St. Lawrence of Rome (c. 225–258) was one of the seven deacons of ancient Rome under Pope Sixtus II that were martyred during the persecution of Emperor Valerian in 258. St Lawrence is thought to have been born in Spain, at Huesca, a town in the Aragon region near the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains.
Upper right phot is the chapel of San Cernin and left is the main altar of the church.
Then, I headed San Nicolás (St. Nicholas Church) through the narrow street, Calle de San Miguel.
Church of St. Nicholas was the religious centre of the medieval borough of the same name and performed an important military and defensive function for the people of the borough.
The 12th century church/fortress dates from the transition period between Romanesque and Gothic.
The church houses a huge baroque organ dating from 1769 which is the finest in the city. In its interior, the vault and apse are Gothic, while the rest of the church is Cistercian in style.
The church is encircled by porticos built in 1888, and It was restored in 1924.
I went to Plaza del Castllo (Square Castllo) through the Paseo Sarasate from Square of the Iglesia San Nikolas.
On the way to the Castllo Square, found the birthplace of Paseo Sarasate on the Sarasate Street.
It’s now the vegetarian restaurant “Restaurante Sarasate.”
Arrived at Plaza del Castillo (Castle Square) from Paseo Sarasate soon. The Castle Square is in the center of Pamplona.
So tired, I took some coffee break at the Café Iruña that is one of the most famous and popular cafes in Pamplona.
Café Iruña is very famous for Ernest Hemingway was drunken every night. I have also drank every night, but do not become famous.
After sipping some coffee at the Café Iruña, I went back to the bullring.
The statue of Ernest Hemingway is in front of the Bullring, he really loved bullfighting.
I took some photos there and said “goodbye, Ernest,” then left for the next destination.
