The city of Pamplona may be located in the autonomous community of Navarre but its history is one of common tradition with the mysterious Basque people in the region next door. It is the single city of the area where the Basque language has historically been spoken on the Iberian Peninsula that was successfully conquered by the Romans. The fact that the modern city is not located within the boundaries of the Basque region may be the single greatest legacy of Roman interaction with the Basques that resisted the marauding empire.
The Football club of Pamplona, Club Atlético Osasuna, has achieved promotion back to La Liga. We would like to congratulate all employees, fans and associates of the club on doing so.
