Ya han empezado los San Fermines, de las que se puede decir que son las fiestas españolas más famosas del mundo. Su fama mundial se debe al estadounidense Ernest Hemingway, gran admirador de las ferias taurinas y escritor de Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises y Death in the Afternoon.

                                                 

Esta semana la población de Pamplona pasará de 190.000 personas a más de 1.000.000, debido a los turistas que vendrán de todas partes del mundo a participar en la fiesta y correr en el encierro.
