Throughout the San Fermin Festival, famous fighters come to participate in Pamplona’s evening bullfights.
The “Novillada” Bullfight on July 5th features younger bulls and younger bullfighters. It begins at 8:00 p.m. We highly recommend arriving at the Plaza de Toros no later than 7:45 p.m. so that you may locate your seat.
The “Rejones” Bullfight on July 6th features Rejoneadors instead of Matadors, who conduct the bullfight on horseback. It begins at 6:30 p.m. We highly recommend arriving at the Plaza de Toros no later than 5:45 p.m. so that you may locate your seat.
Traditional Bullfights from July 7th through July 14th are the finale to the Running of the Bulls each day, featuring matadors who fight the bulls who ran the bull run route that morning. They begin at 6:30 p.m. daily. We highly recommend arriving at the Plaza de Toros no later than 5:45 p.m. so that you may locate your seat.
Tendido Shade: These are limited availability tickets on the shade side in the lower decks. The Tendido ticket reserves you a seat in the lower section, getting you closer to the action alongside more serious fans.
Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Bullfight tickets are available for pickup at Hotel Pamplona Cathedral Hotel between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. If you arrive later than 6:00 p.m., you risk losing the value of your ticket. Bullfight tickets are non-refundable and we are unable to change your tickets to another day as the entire fiesta sells out in advance. It is your responsibility to plan ahead and pick your tickets up on time.
NOTE: We do strive to make sure that we seat groups together, but unfortunately cannot guarantee that parties of three or more will be next each other.
Please be aware that advance tickets are expensive and will cost more than the face value of the tickets. It is sometimes possible to purchase tickets on the day of the event from scalpers found in front of the Plaza de Toros, but this is never guaranteed and the price can vary wildly. If you are only visiting Pamplona for a day or two, we highly suggest paying the premium for certainty.
A few months before the festival, you will receive an email invitation to download our Trip Plans app. This app will give you access to your live itinerary, including addresses of your events and contact information for our office in Pamplona. You will even be able to message us in the app during the festival.
