Bullfighting in Spain is a traditional spectacle that became popular in the 18th century. It’s probably one of the most ancient mass entertainments of the world. Actually, bullfights are considered one of the symbols of the Hispanic culture and an art expression.

In Spain the bullfighting season goes from March until October. If you plan to attend a Spanish bullfight somewhere in Spain, you should have a look at the official bullfighting schedule. It includes all the corridas that will be held during the season as well as the novilladas.

If you’re planning to go, make sure to plan everything (including getting your tickets) well in advance.


What is flamenco? It’s both a musical style and a dance typical of Andalucía, the southern region of Spain. Originally, it was the traditional dance and music of the Andalusian gitanos (gypsies). Even though flamenco is still deeply connected to the gypsy culture, many payos (non-gypsies) have contributed to expand it both in Spain and overseas.

Seville is considered the cradle of flamenco. In fact a vast majority of famous flamenco artists were born or started their career in Seville. As result, the offer of flamenco is endless and you can choose among many options where flamenco dancing and singing are beautifully performed.

Semana Santa

Holy Week celebrations in Spain are really impressive. Depending on the city and the traditional celebrations, the place can transform itself into a place of repentance, grief and symbolic darkness. Nevertheless, despite the aesthetic, it is a very more colorful event.

Regardless of your religious attitude, don’t think twice and come to experience the best Spanish festival!
