The Jaizkibel mountain range, located in the Basque Country, offers spectacular views of both Spain and France, the river Bidasoa, and the Cantabrian sea. I have been there a few times and I am always stunned by the scenery.
Pamplona is the capital of Navarre, a province in northern Spain just 82 km from San Sebastian, and the city where Sanfermines is held each year. The eight day festival celebrates some of Spain’s most popular traditions, most notably el encierro, or the running of the bulls. More than a million people visit Pamplona during Sanfermines making it the biggest festival in Spain.
