Bullfighting – a sport filled with Spanish culture

Currently, bullfighting is very popular in Spain with thousands of people flocking to the local arena every week. According to estimates, the annual total number of people watching bullfighting in Spain reaches one million.

The warriors perform this observation step to know the characteristics and mood of the bull before entering the official battle.

When the match started, the trumpet sounded, many gladiators called Picadores would weaken the cow by stabbing spears into it. This process takes about 10 minutes.
