Las Ventas and La Maestranza announce their respective promotion steer-bullfights cycles for July and beginning of August
With the arrival of summer (which this year has taken a lot to come…), the bullfights are delayed until dusk, the best time of the day to enjoy the ambition of younger bullfighters. The first two bullrings of our country, the Monumental of Las Ventas in Madrid and the Real Maestranza of Sevilla, begin the first week of July their steer-bullfights of promotion. A necessary bet for the quarry and a golden opportunity for young bullfighters.
