The Chupinazo (San Fermin Opening Ceremony) is perhaps the Fiesta most well-known event along with the Running of the Bulls (‘Encierro’). Every 6th of July at noontime more than 10.000 people from all over the world gather at Pamplona City Hall Square to get the most out of the launch of the ‘Chupinazo’, the rocket which announces the start of Festival:
‘At noon, on Sunday, the 6th of July, the Fiesta exploded. There is no other way to describe it’ (Ernest Hemingway).
If you like to enjoy this unique experience in a comfortable and safe way you can book a spot at our balconies at Plaza del Ayuntamiento (City Hall Square). You will feel the emotion of the Chupinazo from a privileged location, accompanied by our Local Tourist Guides!
