What a great piece of public art. It’s worth the short walk from the old centre to check out the statue. Rub the bull’s horn for good luck. It makes a great photo as a tourist.

What a great statue! The bulls look terrific, and the participants faces tell the story. If you walk across the Plaza de Castillo, you can see where the bulls run. Fun side trip, indeed!

A great statue depicting the running of the bulls during the San Fermin festival every July. As someone who has done it, the statue offers a great view of how it looks. The only things missing are the sounds of the bulls and the cheers from the crowds!
We went there for the running of the bulls opening ceremony. WOW awesome experience! I would love to go back. Pamplona is such a nice little town, with tiny narrow streets, easy to get lost, which makes you see even more of it! Definitely worth going!
This famous sculpture made by artist Rafael Huerta of Bilbao is a sight to see. Encierro literally means confinement in Spanish which is what happens before the bulls (fighting and castrated ones depicted here) run with willing people. The humans are hoping not to be pinned or hurt by the bulls. Mind you, I do not condone this part of my Spanish heritage as it is a form of animal cruelty which has gained much ridicule from all over the world. While spending time looking at this massive installation made of bronze just this last June, I noticed a side of it that shows the power of the bull and the fear in man. It is along the street aptly placed facing the arena where bullfighting occurs, free for anyone to look at. I hope the pictures I took do it justice and I hope people see what I saw.
Nice statue that shows a scene of San Fermin. Good to take photos
One of the best monuments I have seen, so realistic.
