What is Bullfighting ?

The English term “bullfighting” is generally used to describe what people familiar with the subject call a “Corrida de Toros”. This customary English translation is a misnomer, as it fails to identify the event clearly among a variety of bull-related events and activities and also falsely places the spectacle in the realm of sport.

What happens in a Bullfight?

The traditional and most common format of a Corrida sees three matadors alternating in order, to face and ultimately kill six bulls over the course of roughly two and a half hours. This format is followed for bullfighting in Spain, Mexico, France and other countries with this tradition.
