The bullring In Seville, known as the Plaza de la Maestranza

The Bullfighting Ring was built in the 1700's A.D., with restorations made in the mid-1900's.

Ok, I have yet to really see a bullfight, but I have watched one on TV:-); on this visit to Seville I didn't even get the opportunity to enter the bullring.

Bullfighting is the national sport and some of the supreme matadors of all time were born in the city of Seville.


Building sign on a store in the Santa Cruz District: Here was the studio of the Matador - Painter John Fulton.

Who was John Fulton?
A painter, a Philadelphian from the U.S., a writer, a matador; all the above. While studying painting in Mexico, John Fulton (Short) took up bullfighting.

In 1956 Fulton decided to apply his bullfighting talents in Spain, but not without some difficulty. He was eventually accepted by Spaniards as a matador until his retirement in 1994.

To see your own bullfight in Seville, plan for the spring and summer seasons; you're unlikely to see a bullfight after mid-October.
