Rural Getaway Navarre from MERTXENEA, rural house in ELCANO.
The traveler tends to arrive in Pamplona to see the tour of the enclosure and its bullring, well known because of the Sanfermines. But it is surprised and captivated by the city, by its ramparts and its great Old town.
It surprises an old city so large, full of streets to traverse. And in all is felt the age of centuries.
Except for its beautiful Gothic cathedral, it is not a monumental city, but if it is a city to inhabit, to walk and to rest in its bars and bars that offer a great offer of pintxos.
It’s definitely worth knowing. From Mertxenea it will take us 20 minutes to get to the city centre.
And if we do not feel like getting in the car, we can take advantage of the magnificent bus service that, starting from Huarte-Pamplona, will leave us in the city center
