Bullfighting spectacles are making a grand return to Cáceres after a hiatus of six years without any bull-related events. This marks a significant moment in the city’s cultural calendar, breathing life back into a tradition that has been dormant for some time. The city of Cáceres, known for its rich history and vibrant traditions, is once again echoing with the anticipation and excitement that these spectacles bring.

This isn’t just a return; it’s a revival of a cherished tradition, a celebration of the city’s cultural heritage. The spectacle of the bullring, the skill of the matadors, and the passion of the spectators all come together to create an experience that’s more than just a show – it’s a unique event that captures the spirit of Cáceres.

Don’t miss out on this unique event. It’s not just about witnessing a bullfight; it’s about being part of a tradition, a community, and a celebration that’s been years in the making. Whether you’re a long-time fan or a curious newcomer, this is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a part of Cáceres’ cultural identity that has been dearly missed. Come and be part of the grand return of bullfighting spectacles in Cáceres. It promises to be an unforgettable experience.

Cáceres Bullfighting Fair 2024

It has been five years since the Era de los Mártires bullring held its last bullfighting spectacle. On that occasion, Juan Mora and Emilio de Justo, the two most important bullfighters from Cáceres in recent decades, were carried out on shoulders after offering a great afternoon to their fellow citizens. Five years later, and with a pandemic in between, the bulls return in grand style to the Extremadura bullring, and they do so hand in hand with the company Lances de Futuro.


The society run by José María Garzón has prepared an irresistible offer for all good fans. In two bullfights, scheduled for May 31 and June 2, the San Fernando festival recovers all its splendour after a long period of abstinence.

On the first of these days (Friday 31), the two bullfighters with whom fans most identify with the concept called “artist” will fight in the ring: Morante de la Puebla and Juan Ortega. A duo, a pair, that promises to all who come to this nearly bicentennial arena a dream turned into a guarantee: to see bullfighting.


The poster is also topped off by a legend of horseback bullfighting, Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza, who in the process of saying goodbye to the rings wanted to say goodbye to the fans of Cáceres. The rejoneo bulls bear the iron and badge of Murube, while the foot bulls belong to the Salamanca herd of Domingo Hernández.


On Sunday, June 2, the programme is completed with a high-voltage mano a mano. A duel with a clear Extremadura flavour, in which the two provinces of this land also confront each other: On behalf of Badajoz, Alejandro Talavante, and on behalf of Cáceres, Emilio de Justo. Two figures of bullfighting face to face, with the noble and healthy intention of making their fellow citizens enjoy.


In addition, the “judges” of the contest will be from up to three different ranches, and of different breeds, which increases the interest and the packaging of the event. Two bulls from El Pilar (Aldeanueva breed), two from Garcigrande (Juan Pedro Domecq line) and two from La Quinta (Buendía branch of Santa Coloma). The bet has all the incentives and attractions for the Cáceres square to shine resplendent after its period of opacity.


And as man does not live by bulls alone, Cáceres has a wide cultural offer to complement this first weekend of June. Founded by the Romans, it faithfully preserves different vestiges of later cultures. Its old town, its medieval streets, its fortified palaces and its Moorish wall constitute the ideal prelude to a great afternoon of bullfighting.
