What you'll see
corrida (the bullfight) consists of 6 fifteen minute sections
known as faenas. In each faena a bull (toro) is faced
by one of three matadors (though on special occasions there may only
be one matador present). Matadors (or toreros), the ones who actually
kill the bull, are dressed in gold, while their subordinates are in
silver or black dress.
Where and when
in Madrid take place in the Las Ventas bullring, often referred to as
the Mecca of bullfighting. The season in Madrid is from March to October,
with bullfights at Las Ventas every Sunday at 7:00 PM. During the Feria
de San Isidro, (from about mid-May to mid-June) and the Feria de Otoo
(which begins toward the end of September) there are bullfights everyday,
often with well known bullfighters.
There are also bullfights held in many of the towns around Madrid at different times of the year. The tourist offices should be able to inform you about these. We'll try to get this info in here as soon as possible.
