Torrejón de Ardoz: the best bullfighters will be 30 kilometres from Madrid

It is one of the towns in the Community of Madrid that is most proud of its bullfighting posters each season. It’s impossible to find a greater concentration of attractions in just three days of bullfighting. Moreover, it’s just a stone’s throw from the capital. Don’t search for excuses not to attend, because you simply won’t find any.

Located just over 30 kilometers from the capital and excellently connected by the transport network of the Community of Madrid, the town of Torrejón de Ardoz celebrates its patron saint festivities around Saint John’s Day. And of course, in its leisure offerings, which are broad and varied for all kinds of tastes and audiences of all ages, bullfighting events could not be missing.


Currently, it is the company Lances de Futuro, with José María Garzón at the helm, that is responsible for organizing the festivities in Torrejón, and in 2024 it has presented three combinations of great interest – two bullfights and a rejoneo (bullfighting on horseback) event – in which the figures of bullfighting are interspersed with the matadors who are most in vogue.

The program opens on Saturday, June 22, with a lineup worthy of any prestigious fair: José Antonio Morante de la Puebla, Alejandro Talavante, and Juan Ortega, three figures of bullfighting present in all the season’s subscriptions, who also captivate the public with their interpretation, will face bulls of Murube origin from the Castillejo de Huebra ranch.

The following day (Sunday 23), a bullfighter from a dynasty like Cayetano Rivera Ordóñez, along with two matadors from the new generation who already know what it is to triumph in the Las Ventas arena, such as Ginés Marín and Borja Jiménez, will make the paseíllo to take on six bulls from the El Pilar ranch, owned by Moisés Fraile.

The fair closes with a rejoneo art event on Monday 24, the feast of Saint John the Baptist. With bulls from Manuel Santiago Corvo “El Canario”, the lineup includes Andrés Romero from Huelva, Léa Vicens, a French horsewoman based in La Puebla del Río, and the young Guillermo Hermoso de Mendoza, son of the master Pablo, who is following in his father’s footsteps in a brilliant and successful manner.

Inaugurated in 1996 and capable of accommodating five thousand souls in its comfortable seats, the Torrejón arena is a modern and functional building, but the fact that it can be used for various purposes does not imply that the fan, or the passerby, does not identify the building as a bullfighting venue, because it even has a certain flavor in its design and structure. Moreover, its spacious and comfortable seats make it a model and attraction to witness the spectacle in the best conditions. All that remains is to enjoy it.
