Well, if you don’t even stumble across this plaza throughout your stay then that would be surprising since a previous reviewer summarised it well, all roads lead here. A good central location to meet people or to get your bearings before heading anywhere. As a...More

This square is the hub of Saturday night social life in Pamplona. After 9pm a buzz develops around all the bars and restaurants which circle the square. Only downside for me was the Spanish smoking tradition which is still strongly in force.

The biggest Square in the old part of the city. From there you can go to the different streets surrounding it, plenty of bars and with a nice atmosphere
