We approach you to the brave field to learn about the upbringing of the fighting bull very close to Las Ventas Bullring
It is true that the maximum expression of bullfighting is found in the arena of a bullring, when bull and bullfighter finally meet and face each other. But everything acquires greater meaning if we also have the opportunity to meet the bull in the field. The Fighting Bull is the epicenter of the Fiesta and raising it is a task that extends four or five years and requires great dedication and effort.
From the time they are born and weaned, to the temptation and selection of the cattle; the handle, food, sanitation… endless work whose goal is to raise a brave and entangled animal to fight for his life in the bullring. In the visits to the ranches we can enjoy the explanations of breeders or foremen, who show with passion the mysteries of the fighting bull.
