Bullfighting schedule

by Karlie85

Does anywhere know where I can find a full bullfighting schedule for 2011?
Thanks.

Re: Bullfighting schedule

by Karlie85

Or maybe a better question would be, does anyone know when the 2011 schedule is out? I've found this website http://www.exploreseville.com/events/toros.htm but it still has the 2010 one. Thanks.

What you can read at www.realmaestranza.com/PAGINASR/latemporada.htm is something like:
"Traditionally, the bullfighting season in the arena of the Real Maestranza begins on Easter Sunday and continues with the celebrations held to mark the Feria de Abril that in recent years consisted of 16-18 shows. Also bullfights are held on the feast of Corpus Christi, on August 15 Feast of the Virgen de los Reyes, the city's patron, on the last weekend of September, on "Feria de San Miguel" and 12 October day of the Virgen del Pilar, which closes the official season, although there may be subsequent bullfights. Also, every Sunday of the months of May, June and September are held "novilladas con picador". Also during the months of July and August are usually schedule some "novilladas con picador" and a cycle of promotion of "novilladas sin picador", sponsored by the Real Maestranza."

Cant find one yet either, nor much on google.es

Have you been before?

We went to one in El Puerto de Santa Maria (Cadiz) in July 2005 - well my two sons and I did whilst the 'she who must be obeyed' and our daughter stayed at the rented villa. It was one of the big season fights, with Jesulin, El Fandi and Miguel Angel Perera and the whole town was there. Complete sell out and not cheap.

Had to go to see what it is all about but dont think I'll bother again. Uniquely hispanic (and Ernest Hemingway) social event and we English dont really get it. Lots of blood, and sitting in the half sun half shade seats meant seriously toasting for part of the evening, along with 15,000 other people crammed onto small stone seats in an ancient stadium which would be licenced for about 4,000 here. Glad I didn't drink anything beforehand and need the loo in the 4 hours (ish)!

Good to have gone though and know what I'm talking about, unlike many who seem to condemn it.

The "temporada" (=> bullfighting season) starts in February in Castellón de la Plana with the "Feria de la Magdalena". Then, in March, in Valencia, you have the "Feria de San José". In Easter you have "corridas" (=> bullfights) in the most important Spanish cities. In April you have one of the best "ferias": "feria de Abril" in Seville. In May you have the "Feria de San Isidro" in Madrid, maybe the most important "feria" in the world. Then in June, July, August and September you have "corridas" in many places all around the country. The "temporada" ends in October in Zaragoza with "Feria del Pilar".

by Sandra_Seville

Do you know when and where you'd like to see a bullfight?
Dates are not known well in advance as the bullrings managers need to close the deals with the toreros depending on their agenda.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Plaza d' Espania

by K1W1

The plaza is a huge complex where hours can be spent wandering the gardens and buildings. The detail in the buildings is fantastic although it has seen better days and unfortunately is in a state of disrepair.

There is lots to see in...

by Jarra

There is lots to see in Sevilla. For example, Plaza de Espana is a wonderful place to visit. And of course you cannot miss the cigare factory where the famous Carmen used to work. But after seeing all this the most famous building in Sevilla is, I suppose, the cathedral. It is declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. It was built on the location of the high mosque of the Sevilla, demolished in the 15th century and for many centuries was the biggest religious monument in all of Christendoom. It contains five aisles of Gothic style with a large transept, site of the main chapel, a construction which boasts a magnificant altarpiece and a Plateresque Grill. The cathedral was designed by Alonso Martinez, Simon de Colonia and Juan Gil de Ontanon. The works were finished off in 1506. The cathedral also houses sepulcher of Christopher Columbus. I went to see flamenco, the local folk dancing, and I loved it. If you want to enjoy fancy dancing and singing, you should visit Taplao Flamenco Los Gallos. It was a quite expensive place but well worth of money. Its address is: Plaza de Sta.Cruz, 11, Tel. 954 216 981. You should book yourself in advance because it was always sold out. Visit www.infor.es/gallos.

Smell those oranges!

by acemj

One of the most unique and memorable things about Sevilla is the scent of oranges that freshens the air, particularly in the Barrio Santa Cruz. Greater Sevilla is a bustling city and there are busy streets with traffic and car fumes, but you can be sure that a quiet lane is not far away. The alleys of La Macarena, El Arenal and Santa Cruz are great escapes from the noise and exhaust fumes. Occasionally, you will see oranges that have been pulled off the trees or were blown off and subsequently run over by horse carriages. While it creates a bit of a mess, it sure makes the street smell great!!

Spainish Holidays

by Fen

Holidays are a major part of life in Spain.
There are many holidays in the Spanish calendar, some of them only apply to certain regions or towns and they are a good excuse to get together and eat, drink and be merry.

Semana Santa is a religious festival. Normally it takes place during April. The most famous one is in Seville. (The processions were started on the 16th century as a protest against the Protestant "heresy". It’s a public manifestation in favour of the Catholic church).
In Seville there are 52 "cofradías" (brotherhoods) who prepare "pasos" with the image of Christ and the Virgin Mary.
There are processions every day starting with Palm Sunday. Each paso and the nazarenos leave the church and follow a pre-determined route around the city before returning back to church (sometimes it takes 12 hours).
First goes the Cruz de Guía, symbol of the Passion of Christ, then the nazarenos with their tunics and pointed hats. They are doing penitence and therefore must not be recognised.
Another form of penitence is to carry the paso. Normally there are 50 costaleros who support the weight of the paso.

Prepare for the heat in Seville

by swedishanna

If you are staying in Santa Cruz and have one of those wheely bags, beware that the district is mainly cobbled streets, so you might have to double check that you can manage to lift the bag as well! During the summer, light clothes, and a hat.
During the winter; layers as in the mornings it`s cool or even cold, and then it can get up towards 15-20 mid afternoon.. Sunscreen!!! Digital cameras are the way to go... Otherwise bring loads of film and go snap happy :)
Oh, and camera batteries.... If you wear high heels a lot, take in mind that you are more than likely to have to take them to the shoemaker after your stay in Sevilla (if you have walked around Santa Cruz and the area around the Cathedral) as the cobbled streets seem to eat the heels away...
