Located between the Basque Country and Aragon, with the wine region of La Rioja to the south, we find the capital of Navarra.

The Plaza Consistorial is a civil meeting point located right in the heart of the old town. As its name indicates, it is the seat of the Pamplona City Hall. Its importance lies in the fact that it is a space dating from the Middle Ages that was built in order to seek unification and peace; King Carlos III wanted to put an end to the conflict between the burghs of Pamplona and enacted the Privilege of the Union so that the Navarrería, San Nicolás and San Cernin were grouped into a single municipality.
The Plaza Consistorial is the meeting point to inaugurate the San Fermín festivities
The streets of Santo Domingo and Mercaderes meet at the Plaza Consistorial. Different buildings have been constructed in this same location in the town. Although the rococo style façade is the only thing that remains since its reconstruction in 1755, the Town Hall has baroque elements such as the iron balconies and the sculptures that pay homage to Prudence, Justice, Hercules and Fame.
Nowadays, the Town Hall Square is popularly known around the world as "Sanfermines" because it is the place from where the "chupinazo" is launched to inaugurate the San Fermin festivities every July 6th. It is also the stage where the festivities are bid farewell with the "Pobre de mí" (Poor me) on July 14th.
