Sanfermín ToursJoin Sanfermín Tours in Pamplona for the Fiesta de San Fermín and the Running of the Bulls, as six magnificent fighting bulls, Toros Bravos, brave bulls, race along the narrow streets of the casco antiguo, the city's historic quarter, as the sun is rising over the streets of Pamplona on the morning of July 7 to begin the eight days of the encierro.
