How can I book bullfighting in Arles? How will I know when bullfights are on?

by rileyt

Hi,
I'm trying to find some kind of programme to see if there will be bullfights at the Arenes de Arles when I go on a trip to Southern France in July-August. I understand there is also a type of bullfighting where they don't kill the bull also held at Arenes de Arles? Personally, I don't mind whether I see that or the real bullfighting.

So is there a website? Or set annual dates?

Thanks.

You can use the Calendar of Events at:
http://www.tourisme.ville-arles.fr/us/manifestations/index.php

In the drop down menu you'll find Bull Games.

As far as I can see, they are all scheduled for 2011.

The tourist office may be a good place to start

I also find Mr Google is a good source of help and information.

You could also look at the VT Arles travel pages and browse Tips on Things to do and Local Customs. Just Type Arles in the Destination search Box at top right of the page.

Good Luck.

Course camarguaise, which is not actually bullfighting, does not involve killing the bull. The idea is to remove a ribbon from the head of the bull.

There is also Spanish-style bullfighting in the Camargue, but this does not involve the camarguais bulls.

Arles City Map

by davequ

A map of the central, old part of Arles.
Here is a much higher resolution and easier read online pdf version of the map on the left, click below (need Adobe to open):
Arles pdf City Map online

Here is (click below) an online, "zoomable" interactive streetmap of downtown Arles from MapQuest:

ARLES by MapQuest

that if you zoom in to street level lets you find actual street addresses.

Here are some cool HD fotos of Arles

and here is another fun map from ProvenceWeb:
Arles City Map Wandering the deserted streets and little cafes late at night after a late diner from approx. 22:00 to 2am.

Without attempting to be "deep" or melodramatic, the experience is almost (imho) mystical and timeless.

Bullfighting

by agarcia

As many other Spaniard people, I dislike bullfighting. I can't find nothing heroic or romantic in the inevitable facts, and the fact about bullfighting is that the bull never, ever leave the bullring alive.
But that's the Spanish version of bullfighting. The French version is more an acrobatic (even choreographic) spectacle, in with the death of the animal is not a requirement. Whish we could learn something from our northern neighbors...apart from eating baguettes or croissants ;-)

As you could appreciate in the picture, Arles taurine fair takes place in the third week of April, in Les Arenes

Musee Reattu

by aliante1981

The town's museum is named for the local painter Jacques Réattu, who lived in 1760 – 1833, and naturally comprises loads of his pieces. But it actually contains examples of works by some of the best known artists of the world important works – how about etchings and drawings by Picasso?

There are also paintings and sculptures by Alechinsky, Dufy, Léger, Henri Rousseau, and Zadkine (pay attention to La Grande Odalisque of his – an unusually looking sculpture). Note the Arras tapestries from the 16th century. 3 Euros for adults, 2.5 Euros for students (as well as those aged 12-18 years) and free for the children under 12 years old.

Les Arenes

by agarcia

Les Arenes (The Arena) is a good example of public buildings reutilization, and an indispensable visit. What was once the scene of brutal battles between gladiators now is the scene of not so brutal fights between bullfighters and bulls. Well, at least the French version of Bullfighting is not as dangerous for the bull's health as the Spanish one (which inevitably and sadly always ended with the dead of the animal)

Arena (cont)

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The size of its ellipse is equal from 107 till 136 meters. 43 of some spectator places rise above the arena. It is allowed to be placed about 30 thousand spectators here. Lines crown 60 arches.

The arena is on 2,5 meters below the first spectator. It protected spectators from possible attacks of animals participated in gladiatorial battles.
