|Subject: Re: Visit to Spain / Bullfights|
The bull ring in Seville - Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza - is one of the oldest in Spain and it is one of the most magnificent. It is a wonderful place to see your first bullfight. There is also a terrific museum that will give you a very detailed history of bullfighting - worthy of a visit.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I also find the idea of bullfighting abhorrent so my suggestion is to do what I did - watch the pageantry and leave or turn away once the bull is compromised. There is no way I could watch a bull being killed. However I thoroughly enjoyed being involved in the tradition, watching fathers & sons spending time together, the beauty of the parade and the majesty of the matadors. I have no regrets - I am grateful that I did not miss this opportunity.
Take a chance - I don't think you will regret it.
