In a city centuries old, an unbridled explosion of merriment takes centre stage for nine days each year. Danger and death dance in the streets each morning as six fighting bulls race toward the bullring where they will die in the afternoon. Champagne corks skyrocket as revellers celebrate a saint martyred hundreds of years ago. Bands play in the cobblestone streets all night, and barrooms swell with adventurous travellers from all corners of the globe. Pamplona's Fiesta has been described as 'the best week you can live on the planet', and this book takes you to the epicentre of the grand festival in Spain's Basque country.
