Pamplona is located in the centre of the Autonomous Community of Navarre, in northern Spain, very close to the border with France. By road, the city is within easy reach of a number of different places.
The journey by car from the neighbouring cities of San Sebastian, Vitoria-Gasteiz and Logroño takes approximately one hour. San Sebastian and Vitoria-Gasteiz are connected to Pamplona via the AP-15 toll motorway, while Logroño is connected via the A-12 free expressway.
Less than two hours away are Bilbao, along the AP-15, and Zaragoza, connected to Pamplona by the AP-68 and AP-15 motorways.
The car journey from Madrid to Pamplona takes just over four hours. Although there are a number of options, the most common route is via the A-2 expressway to Medinaceli, taking the N-111 to Soria, followed by the N-122 to Tudela where it is then possible to take the AP-15 motorway as far as the capital city of Navarre.
From Barcelona, the most popular option is to take the AP-2 motorway to Zaragoza, then the AP-68 and, finally, the AP-15 to Pamplona.
Visitors coming from France generally cross the border at Irun and take the N-121-A road to Pamplona in a journey that takes little over one hour.
