In which areas of Spain you can watch bullfights?

Bullfighting – the famous Spanish national entertainment, deeply rooted in the culture and traditions of this sunny country. The efforts of animal defenders have led to the fact that in a number of Spanish provinces, for example, in Catalonia, bullfighting is currently prohibited.

In which areas of Spain you can watch bullfights?
Nevertheless, in many regions of Spain, this exotic and colorful spectacle can be enjoyed completely freely.

Madrid. Las Ventas Arena is one of the most famous bullfighting venues, capable of accommodating up to 20,000 spectators. This is where the most popular matadors perform. Bull fighting takes place every Sunday. In May and June, during the famous San Isidro Festival, performances are given daily at full capacity: the best tickets to these events are booked in a few months. In Madrid there is another smaller arena – Vista Alegre.

Bullfight season in Spain lasts from April to September inclusive. However, there are also “winter” events: for example, the February festival in the city of Ciudad Rodrigo.
Seville The main city of Andalusia is rightly considered the unofficial capital of bullfighting. The Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza arena is widely known both in Spain and abroad. Built in 1761, Maestransa is the oldest still used arena, and is also considered the most beautiful. Although the venue is not so large compared to the Madrid (12,000 seats), the best matadors of the country are honored to speak at it. All lovers of bullfighting come to Seville in early spring, when the April festival (Feria de Abril) takes place in the city, during which the most famous matadors demonstrate their art.

Rhonda In this small Andalusian city, the tradition of “walking” bullfight was born, in which the picadors (horsemen) do not participate. In addition to the arena, there is also a very interesting museum of bullfighting in Ronda.

Valencia. Bullfights are one of the most famous tourist attractions in Valencia. The Plaza de Torros Arena, erected in 1861 in the style of a Roman amphitheater, is located not far from the station, which is convenient for tourists who arrive in the city especially on the corrida.

Corridas usually last 3-4 hours. In the hot season, spending all this time in the sun will be quite uncomfortable, so it is better to pay extra for places in the shady part of the stands (sombre).
Malaga. The Plaza La Malagueta arena is not as famous as many others, but it is very interesting for those who want to see a bullfight in a traditional rather than a tourist style. Bullfights in Malaga are organized according to old canons. During the festival in August, performances are given daily.

Running with the bulls in Pamplona for 30 years now broadcast live on Spanish television
Running with the bulls in Pamplona for 30 years now broadcast live on Spanish television

Pamplona. It is here that you can witness the famous Spanish custom of the encerro – running with the bulls, which are released from the pen. Encerro takes place during the festival of San Fermin, which the Spaniards themselves are sometimes called the bull festival. In the evening of the same day, the bulls, which were released from the pen, participate in the bullfight.

Although Pamplona is famous for its encerro, this colorful custom is by no means its prerogative. Running with the bulls occurs in other Spanish cities: San Sebastian, Tudela, Denia, Coria.
Ciudad Rodrigo. Carnival in this small town is interesting with its “interactive” approach: for example, anyone here can try their hand at fighting with a young bull.

Alicante. In the arena of Plaza de España, you can see authentic bullfights, timed to coincide with the festival of San Juan at the end of June.
