From here, hosts Julie Conover &Mark Jennings visit the charming fishing village of St. Jean de Luz and cycle through the foothills of the Pyrenees to reach Pamplona, where they’ll participate in the world famous Festival of San Fermin.
Crazy or not, each year, thousands of locals and visitors hit the streets for the traditional “running of the bulls”. The frenetic activity continues in the streets till dawn, with all ages participating in the dancing, partying and parades. The action culminates in the bull ring, is it an elegant spectacle or a cruel sport?
We’ll let you decide.
