The annual festival of St. Fermin is in honor of St. Fermin, the patron saint of Pamplona, who reportedly lived in the third century.
According to local legend, St. Fermin was persecuted for his faith and was killed when his captors tied him to a base. The animal reportedly dragged him to the corpse.
The Spanish bullfighting tradition, which had nothing to do with the celebration of St. Fermin, originated in the 13th century. Over time, the two events have merged, according to the festival’s website.
The week-long bull season, which usually lasts from July 7 to July 14, is now known as St. Fermin Encero – St. Fermin of the Bells.
