Bullfighting (la corrida) is part of the Spanish culture, and this introduction tour will focus on the traditional aspects of this controversial sport.
Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and let them tell you all about bullfighting in Spain. It all starts at Las Ventas arena, where you will be able to walk in the empty arena and have a “backstage” view.
Your guide will tell you all about the magnificent suits of light that the matadors wear during the bullfighting shows, as well as all the characteristics of this Spanish tradition.
The arena visit is followed by a more hands-on approach which takes place in Madrid’s countryside (20-minute drive). Hop into a private, fully-equipped Mercedes V-class minivan and head out to a special school where young matadors train to become the future stars of Spain. This facility also includes a museum dedicated to one of Spain’s most famous bullfighter, “El Juli”.
After this quick visit, a young bullfighter will demonstrate his techniques on a fake bull. Your children will then get a bit of training from the bullfighter himself, turning this activity into a hands-on experience they will never forget.
At the end, your chauffeur will bring you back to your hotel in Madrid.
