It is known as the festival of "San Fermin" - the local patron saint of the city and it is Spain's largest festival drawing over one million people yearly and is a nationally televised event.

The festival involves the practice of running in front of live wild bulls that have been let loose on a half mile course of a sectioned-off subset of the town's streets. The Running of the Bulls is a celebration of Spanish tradition, bravado, and simply one HELL of a party!

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud

It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:

  • It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
  • If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
  • Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
