Bajamar is located in Navarre, on the bank of the Ebro river. This is an area of exceptional land and a great agricultural tradition.
It also has a wide-ranging gastronomic culture, the source of inspiration for developing our Mamia ready-made meals. Navarre offers many attractions for the visitor, due to its cultural wealth and the colouring of its festivities.
St. Fermin Fiesta is famous world-wide. From 6th to 14th July, Pamplona is transformed into a cosmopolitan city, crowded with people from the whole world over, who come to enjoy the celebrations..
One of the most famous rites is the bull-run, which takes place around the streets of Pamplona. This emulates how the bulls were lead from the corral to the bullring, which was previously only possible in this way. Little by little the people started to join them, and today it is one of the most attractive events of the program.
However, the fiesta is more than that, in the middle of it all there are also religious processions, and cultural and sportive events. Definitively, St. Fermin is a big and unique fiesta.
