Photo Story: The Fiesta de San Fermin in Pamplona

A ‘mozo’, is caught by the horn of a bull of  the Miura ranch during the last ‘encierro,’ or running-with-the-bulls, of the Sanfermines festivities in Pamplona, Spain, 14 July 2019.

The festival of San Fermin, locally known as Sanfermines, is held annually from 06 to 14 July in commemoration of the city’s patron saint. Hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world attend the fiesta.

Many of them physically participate in the highlight event – the running of the bulls, or encierro – where they attempt to outrun the bulls along a route through the narrow streets of Pamplona’s old city.

Eight runners were hospitalised, three of them with goring injuries, on the crowded last day of the annual San Fermin bull-running festival in the Spanish city of Pamplona, the Red Cross said on Sunday.
