Are you walking the first stage of the Camino de Santiago from St Jean Pied de Port to Pamplona? If so, you will have the great opportunity of visiting the old town and parks of this traditional city. But we also suggest to follow the most emblematic streets, cafes or bars which once were visited by the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Ernest Miller Hemingway.


As you know Hemingway was born in 1899 in the USA. Considered one of the best writers of the 20th century, he gave life to a number of characters in around twenty novels. Among them, The Sun also Rises (Fiesta), a definitive work to make the festivity of San Fermín internationally known.

Hemingway visited Pamplona nine times, and from the first he walked the streets of the city, drank in its bars and cafés, and enjoyed the local food, the bull runs, the bullfight and the happy atmosphere of the fiesta in general. Apart from Pamplona, other place in Navarre also captivated and inspired the Nobel Prizewinner through its scenery and tranquility. Tourists who follow the steps of the writer in search of the places he visited can follow the route that recalls and pays tribute to Ernest Hemingway.
