Car and Van rental in Pamplona
Each year in July, television viewers all over the world tune in to their news programmes to see a herd of bulls being released in a place in Spain, as young and not-so-young men risk life and limb by running in front of them. This takes place in the city of Pamplona in northeastern Spain, close to Spain's border with France. Pamplona has a long history, dating from a Roman settlement in the area. It has, through the centuries, been under Germanic, Visigoth, Frankish and Arab rule, before finally returning to Spain control in 1512, when a new castle was built and Pamplona became a garrison town and the first Spanish city pilgrims passed through on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Today, the city has a thriving industrial sector based around manufacturing, particularly the automotive industry; Volkswagen has a large site there. Pamplona has an oceanic climate influenced by its proximity to the Mediterranean, and has hot, dry summers. For car hire in Pamplona look at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Airport Car Hire
Step off your flight, make your way through customs, leave the terminal building and get straight into a waiting, pre-booked hire car. What could be more convenient? Why tangle with the vagaries of public transport, or opt to struggle with heavy luggage when a hire car makes life easier. Pamplona Airport is four miles outside the city centre. It is a relatively small airport with a few operators flying mainly to other Spanish destinations. Enterprise has a branch at the airport.
Attractions in Pamplona
Like many historical Spanish towns and cities, Pamplona has an old town, in an area called Navarreria. It is here you will find Santa Maria la Real, Pamplona's 15th-century Gothic cathedral, built, as was the habit, on the site of several predecessor churches. The cathedral is cruciform with a robed vault. Of particular note is the cloister, with its many ornate carvings. Close to the cathedral is the Diocesan Museum, which has a fine art collection and rare examples of 13th century gold and silver religious artefacts. One of the sights of Pamplona can only be seen on feast days, when thirty-foot high statues representing each of the five continents take part in processions. The city has a number of parks and open spaces where it is possible to get away from it all. These include the largest park, Taconera, and Yamaguchi Park, built in the Japanese style.
Places to visit outside Pamplona
There are some charming places to drive to, not too far from Pamplona. For visitors interested in art, a drive of six miles will take them to the Oteiza Museum, where they can see sculptures, drawings and collages by Jorge Oteiza, who comes from Navarre. Sorauren is a small village up in the hills outside Pamplona, the scene of a famous battle in 1813, during the Peninsular War. The town presents an opportunity to see Navarre life close up, and perhaps do some walking. Sanguesar, 30 miles to the southeast of Pamplona, is a walled historical town, with a number of interesting historical buildings, including the Palacio Del Principe, which today is home to the Town Hall.
Parking and Traffic Information in Pamplona
Driving around Navarre is largely unproblematic, providing drivers take time beforehand to acquaint themselves with Spanish driving laws and then adhere to them. Pamplona is a large city and it is closed to traffic between the 5th and the 14th of July, the feast of San Firmin, when the bull running takes place. It is never a good idea to try and take a car into an old town area, unless you are staying at a hotel with its own parking facilities. Parking in Pamplona generally is fairly plentiful, both in pay-for facilities and metered street parking. There is also free parking at some locations on the city boundary.
