A stay in Seville would be incomplete without a visit to one of the temples of the World Bullfighting, the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, located on Paseo de Colón, one of the most beautiful avenues in Seville and attendance at a bullfight.
The so-called Fiesta de los Toros (Bullfighting Festival) is, at its root, an extraordinary anthropological event, as it takes us back to the times when man’s struggle against beasts was framed within the struggle for survival. Today it is also more refined if you like, but just as exciting, because the bullfighter, bullfighter in bullfighting jargon, comes to meet the beast, to dominate it, with the only help of a few pieces of cloth and exposing his body to the astifine pythons of the bulls. Countless have been the right-handed ones who have died in the bullrings.
A show of lavish aesthetics, it has been a source of inspiration for countless Spanish and foreign artists. Painters, sculptors, writers and poets have surrendered to its magic. We invite you to check if it is also for you by witnessing a bullfight from the best locality or visiting some estates where the wild animals breed, being able to participate even in capeas with heifers.
