    Bullfighting posters

    escoural alentejo portugal

    You'll find these spread all around the town. Its actually something I don't like at all. Why should people still go to bulfightings? that's a game to entertain stupid people in the early's medieval times! they had nothing so the rich people offered them some activity and action. Bulfighting in Portugal with the bull killed in the arena is prohibited since the 18th century.
