Madrid Bullfighting Tourism and events.
Madrid is a cultural city full of museums, theatrical performances, historical spaces, monuments, etc. However, it also hides lesser-known tourism and is also part of its leisure and activities agenda: bullfight tour. Madrid is the capital of the TOROS too.
Madrid Toros Tour
In Madrid there is not only the cathedral of bullfighting: the emblematic Plaza de Toros de las Ventas, but there are also stud farms such as CampoToro that allow us to know the ins and outs of the upbringing and care of the brave bull. The Finca CampoToro offers the possibility of enjoying a guided tour of the countryside to watch closely the same brave bulls that will later offer their bravery in the square.
The bullfighting tourism is not only focused on lovers of bullfighting as the Las Ventas Tour, it is also available for all those curious people. Lovers of animals and nature who want to do a different activity in the open air and know a little more about the work they do. It is done in a cattle ranch. If you decide to go to the CampoToro farm you will find yourself traveling through a place of more than 250 hectares where you can see centuries-old holm oaks, ash trees and birds such as storks or eagles. You will be seduced by a natural environment limited by a granite stone fence extracted from the quarry located on the same property. The corrals and the plaza are also built in stone. The strength of the field is a provocation for the senses and more for people who in their day to day have no access to natural landscapes.
A great experience for your senses.
The guided tour of the farm is carried out comfortably on a vehicle suitable for the unevenness and paths of the countryside, on it you can contemplate, without danger, the most emblematic animal of Spain: the brave bull (toro in Spanish). The CampoToro cattle ranch houses more than 580 head of cattle that includes from the reproductive females to the yearlings of one year, to the ages of two, to the three-year-old utreros and to the bulls of 4 years and older. The visit includes a talk about the different types of bulls according to their age or coat; also, it will show the different jobs that are carried out in the farm, what the tinsel, etc. The tentadero will be another of the activities that can be contemplated by those who visit the CampoToro farm, where the bravery of the females is tested to select the most suitable to be breeders. The bullfighting tourism that we propose, as you see, is not limited to visiting a museum to contemplate nothing but objects of bullfighting or photographs of the most memorable moments of a run of all. The cattle ranch of CampoToro provides the opportunity to meet the protagonist of the national holiday, the brave bull, in its natural space, surrounded by other animals and workers on the farm responsible for their care. It offers the opportunity to see up close one of the most noble and brave animals at the same time: the beautiful brave bull.
