A brief introduction

The bull (toro)

The bull (toro) is the protagonist of the bullfight. The bullfight is based on the nicest animal on earth, an animal which has evolved during centuries to reach this perfect blend of casta, bravery (bravura) and beauty.

There are important bull families, Saltillo are fierce, Nuñez are big and with prominent horns, and Miura have killed numerous toreros.
When a bull is exceptionally brave, it is pardoned and returned to the countryside as a stallion for the rest of his life.

The fighting bull

The bullfighter (torero)

The main attribute of a bullfighter is bravery. In addition, he should have the skills to fight (lidiar) well and art to do it gracefully. To be a bullfighter is a miracle, it is the hardest job on Earth. Only one out of the thousands of people who try manage to get to Las Ventas.

Bullfighters progress in their careers through different steps: novilleros (only bullfight steers), and then toreros. Every bullfighter has to come to Madrid to reafirm itself and pass the final exam, once this has been done he has become a true bullfighter.
