About Navarra:

The region of Navarra in the north of Spain borders the Basque Country, La Rioja, Aragon, and the Pyrenees, which makes it a vital part of El Camino de Santiago (Saint James Way). This ancient kingdom's rich history leaves its legacy within medieval villages and festivals such as the famous San Fermin in Pamplona -- eight days of bull running celebrated each July and immortalized by Hemingway in "The Sun Also Rises."

Navarra's unusual past and diverse topography has made it an attraction for "off the beaten" path travelers and food & wine aficionados. Graced with cool uplands and sun-drenched fertile valleys, Navarra produces superb culinary products and wines of the highest quality. The old Kingdom of Navarra has preserved its royal nobility in rich tradition of food and wine

"The Kingdom of Navarra, Spain Visits New York" is sponsored by the Government of Navarra and the Navarra Chamber of Commerce. A similar program will also be presented in San Francisco with 13 restaurants: B44, Bocadillos, Piperade, Rubicon, Scott Howard, Zarzuela, César- Oakland, César- Berkeley, Insalatta's, Bar Tartine, Picco, Aqua, Sabor of Spain.
