Fiesta. Only by visiting Pamplona on the feast of Sanfermines you can really understand what it means. Hemingway visited it for more than 30 years for a reason. He dedicated one of his best works to it: the story "The Sun Also Rises."

This is a carnival until early morning, costume processions, fireworks, and of course, the famous bull races.
