    Bullfighting Advertisement

    Sevilla is one of the best known centers of bullfighting (corrida) in Spain. Typically, the season starts from Easter until late October. Bullfights occurs on Sundays or on special festivals. The best are the ones during the Feria de Abril (April Fair) held 1-2 weeks after Easter. The Feria is the best holiday in Spain where Sevillanos dress in traditional Andalucian costumes and dance the Sevillana.

    You can buy la corrida tickets from the stadium at the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza located at Calle Adriano and Paseo de Colon. 2003 prices range from $20 - $270 (USD).

    Tickets can also be reserved but not purchased by calling (34-95) 450-1382 OR at www.maestranza.com

    Further info also from the Tourist Office of Spain (New York office) 212-265-8822; located at 666 Fifth Ave, 35th Floor, New York, NY 10103.

    The matador ('star') with his peones (junior bullfighter), wearing colourful tights and vest. I think this metador's is wearing the traje de luces (suit of lights). Can you see this metador holding one ear in his right hand??? After the kill, the crowd were on their feet waving white handkerchiefs in the air appealing to the president to award the matador an ear (oreja) of the dead bull. Due to the crowd's enthusiasm, the president waved a white handkerchief at his balcony signalling an ear to be awarded to the metador.

    The picture shows a team of dray horses and man for pulling the bull out of the ring after it died. These horses and men will run into the ring and run out of the ring with the bull being dragged along to the exit. I read that the meat will end up in the butcher shop.

    I think a bull fight is something everyone should go and see. Don't ever root for the bull though, it is considered a great insult.
    During the festival week in Sevilla they have the bull fighters on horseback. It's interesting to see and has been done for hundreds of years.

    I found it interesting to visit this arena and museum which give me an insight into bullfighting.You need to pay to go on a guided tour through the arena which operates a few times per day.

    Bullfight in Sevilla, Spain

    You must see an authentic Spanish bullfight if you are in Sevilla. It is an interesting aspect of Spanish culture to experience although it is a bit bloody and brutal.

    Bull Fight.

    Bull fights are unique to Spain. So I have classified it as a 'must see' activity. Is this why Spanish has oxtail stew (Rabo de toro).
