“Fantastic representation of the running of the bulls”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Do not miss this when you are in Pamplona - when you get to the bull ring, look behind you and it is a few hundred yards directly behind the spectators entrance to the bullring. it is a fantastic sculpture to study and enjoy, so impressive, glad I didn't miss it. follow the bull run route too from the corillas right down to the ramp entrance of the bull ring - excellent

“Magnificent representation of encierro”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

Wonderful life-sized (maybe a little larger than life size) representation of the running of the bulls. This is the closest you can come and not lose your breath! The sculpture is located in a beautiful square with many shops cafés and bars. Worth seeing well in Pamplona.

“Safer to run with a statue bull”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Looks real enough, and an accurate portrayal of running of the bulls event, enjoyed by those who dare and brave enough to do so.

“A beautiful monument!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

You won't miss this walking around Pamplona - it's a beautiful life-size replica of the running of the bulls. Rumor has it that two people have actually been injured on the monument, pretending they are riding the bulls, because the horns are that sharp! :)

“Impressive”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

A natural progression to the former statue to the encierro. This is altogether muck larger and more impressive and captures the spirit of the encierro.
