Those who have not understood Corrida would never understand Spaniards ?? The words of the noble Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorka. These words also belong to Lorka: corrida is the biggest and the most poetical value of Spain. Spain is impossible to imagine without corrida. It is a way of life. Corrida appeared here in the middle ages. Till the XVIII century only single riders took part in it but with the popularity increase of this event riders were replaced by pedestrian fighters.
Goya and Picasso, Rembrandt and Hemingway and many other famous artists of Spain were fond of Corrida or "tavromakhy" - the fight of the bulls. They perceived it like a part of the culture of the country, national character, and traditions. Bulls are specially raised for this event on the farms of Andalusia and Castalia. They enjoy liberty for two years and after the connoisseurs decide if the bull can take part in the fight. But only a four year old bull whose weight is about 450 kilos can be taken to one of the arenas of the country. Federico Garcia Lorka once said death comes to the arena surrounded by magnificent beauty. The corrida season begins in Valencia in March and ends in Madrid and Saragossa in October.
