General information

A bullfight is a traditional bullfighting event that takes place in a bullring. In this show, fighting bulls, bred specifically for this purpose, face off against bullfighters, also known as matadors.

The bullfight consists of several parts:

  1. The paseíllo: It is the initial parade of the participants in the bullring. The bullfighters, their gangs, and the picadors, who are horsemen armed with a spear, parade through the arena in a solemn ceremony.
  2. Thirds: The bullfight is divided into three thirds, each of which has specific characteristics.

– The tercio de varas: It begins with the first bull, and the picadors mounted on horseback enter the arena to confront the bull. Its objective is to bite the bull in the morillo, a muscle mass in the upper part of the animal’s neck. This phase allows to measure the bravery and strength of the bull.

– The tercio de banderillas: After the fight on horseback, the banderilleros enter the bullring to stick banderillas, which are small spears decorated with colored paper, in the upper part of the bull’s back.

– The third of death: In this final phase, the bullfighter, armed with a red cape and a sword, faces the bull more closely. The objective is to perform a task, which includes a series of passes and crutches, showing skill and art. Finally, the bullfighter looks for an accurate thrust with the sword to kill the bull.

3. Back to the ring: If the bullfighter has been brave and has shown great bravery during the bullfight, the public can ask the president of the ring to grant him a return to the ring in recognition.
