Breath-taking landscapes, culinary delights, cultural treasures – Pamplona, the capital of the northern Spanish autonomous community of Navarre and a popular stop-over on The Way of St James, is definitely worth a visit. Among other things, it is known for its culinary arts – taste your way through numerous temptations including pintxos (starters) and cazuelica (a starter cooked in a clay dish). You’ll find excellent tapas bars and restaurants in the historical centre around the Calle San Nicolás and the Calle de la Estafeta. Pamplona also boasts much of architectural interest: not just the medieval city centre, the Navarrería, is well preserved, but also a large part of the city walls. Today, the public parks around the citadel and along the River Arga create a spacious recreational area for the city. Pamplona is also the ideal starting point for activity and adventure holidays in the regions of the Pyrenees that lie in the Basque country, La Rioja and Aragon.
Lufthansa flies four times a week from Frankfurt to Pamplona-Noáin Airport, which is situated about seven kilometres south of the centre of Pamplona.
