About the tour

Welcome to Pamplona, walker! Do you feel like discovering the centennial history of my city and the current way of life of its people?

Together we will walk through the most emblematic streets of the old city, in a journey through time ... from the old Iruña to the Romanization of Pompey, the rise of the Kingdom of Pamplona, the beginnings of el Camino de Santiago and the battles between “the three Burgos ”in medieval times, the Privilege of the Union and the outer walls of the city...

Discover how el Camino de Santiago and its millions of pilgrims have transformed with their presence, for centuries, the life of our city.

Places that we will visit walk and experience:

- Pamplona Cathedral (exterior): the history of the cathedral complex

- San José Square and Caballo Blanco inn: local gems

- Baluarte del Redín viewpoint: France to the north

- Gateway of France: follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims to The Way of Saint James

- Nabarrería: the oldest borough

- Mercaderes Street: where the pilgrims' path and the route of the bulls meet

- Town Hall Square: medieval battlefield where the Fiesta 'explodes' every July 6th

- San Saturnino Church: religious center and military fortress

- Plaza del Castillo: the heart of the city

Javi was an incredible tour guide. He took me to lots of cool spots and pointed out intricate things I otherwise never would have noticed. His explanations were concise and his English outstanding.

I should add that it was only myself on the tour, and I was apprehensive that this meant I was expected to leave a big tip, but I didn't have a lot of cash on me. Javi was unfazed and told me to spend my money on other travel. What a lovely, genuine guy. Cannot recommend highly enough

Javier was excellent, entertaining, knowledgeable, and patient with our myriad of questions. It’s disappointing that the tourist office can’t or won’t tell tourists about these free tours. It was so good that we paid up hopefully a fair fee. I’m adding GuruWalks to my travel website plus hopefully returning to Pamplona.
