Favorite thing: Bullfighting and Seville are closely connected to each other.
In 1730 when Philip V gave a concession for holding bullfights, the Real Maestranza decided to build its own bullring. It was square and wooden. Later it became oval because the corners had prooved to be dangerous.And in 1761 they started to built of stone. In 1786 Charles III prohibited bullfights. The building stopped. Later it was allowed again and building commenced in
1881 it was completed.
Bullfighting is not actually fighting but ritually killing a bull. It is highly controversial because of the cruelty against the bulls. The bulls are specially breeded for this slaughter, but have no training at all. They graze on green meadows until it is time for the bullring.
Decide for yourself if you want see to this or not, it is however populair in Seville.
