Monumento Al Encierro, Pamplona Reviews - Write a Review
This famous sculpture made by artist Rafael Huerta of Bilbao is a sight to see. Encierro literally means confinement in Spanish which is what happens before the bulls (fighting and castrated ones depicted here) run with willing people. The humans are hoping not to be pinned or hurt by the bulls. Mind you, I do not condone this part of my Spanish heritage as it is a form of animal cruelty which has gained much ridicule from all over the world. While spending time looking at this massive installation made of bronze just this last June, I noticed a side of it that shows the power of the bull and the fear in man. It is along the street aptly placed facing the arena where bullfighting occurs, free for anyone to look at. I hope the pictures I took do it justice and I hope people see what I saw.
Running of the bulls energy captured in bronze. The "encierro" title refers to the traditional run in front of bulls or cows. Although this event occurs in other cities of Spain, the encierro of Pamplona is the most famous. If you are on your camino, plan well ahead as lodging might be impossible to come by during the Festival of San Fermin in July.
beautiful depiction of the 'Running with the bulls'. Take time to look at the statue in detail .
Stunning sculpture. The drama on the faces of the men and the determination of the bulls is quite striking. Must see in Pamplona. Easy walking distance from Plaza del Castillo.
Great sculpture. People larger than the bulls chasing them.
