Pamplona Balconies

If you want to actually watch the Running of the Bulls®, it is essential to rent a spot on a private balcony. At street level, there are barricades at certain intersections along the bull run route, but getting a view from the top rail is difficult. Thousands gather around 5am to stake out their spot – and only the top row gets a view. In addition, the front barricades are strictly for medical and safety personnel, leaving the view from behind partially blocked.

The best way to watch with a clear view and a comfortable spot is to reserve a balcony space on the bull run route. Prices vary widely, based on the dates and the balcony level. Prices are highest on the first bull run of the festival, on July 7th each year.

Our balconies below include an English-speaking guide to welcome you, coffee and light pastries to help you wake up in the early morning, as well as our Trip Plans app to help you navigate straight to the door of the balcony.

  • How to participate in Running of the Bulls

    Bull Run Balcony Spot: Santo Domingo, Level 3

    This Pamplona balcony overlooking Calle Santo Domingo offers a great location for viewing the first stretch of the Running of the Bulls or "encierro", one of the most perilous parts of the run. From here, you are able to hear the participants sing the prayer to San Fermín before their run as well as see the runners looking for the bulls at the "corrales".Santo Domingo consists of 280 meters and is run by only the most experienced runners as the bulls tear extremely fast out of the gate and through this section of the Bull Run Route.This balcony also has a back door which will allow you to avoid the crowd of runners when entering the apartment. This is especially convenient for guests with children or those with limited mobility.
