Mediterranean Culture of Bulls

Mediterranean culture of bulls – Love it or loath it, there is no escaping the prevalence of bull worship around the Mediterranean. However much I try to make it work, however, there is not quite a clear thread from the Minotaur imprisoned in the labyrinth on the island of Crete to the plaza de toros of Ronda.

Visitors to Ronda can now learn about this fascinating culture from the bullfighter, Rafael Tejada, who has set up a ranch to tell the secrets of the toros bravos to tourists.

Mediterranian bull culture

Estoy encantado de abriros las puertas a mi pasión. Os invito a descubrir los secretos de la cría de los toros bravos y los caballos…

“I am thrilled to open the doors to my passion. I invite you to learn the secrets of breeding the brave bulls and the horses”

Many of our guests have been enthralled by their visit to Reservatauro and we recommend it to you as part of your cultural tour of Andalucia. Rafael´s site is in English with complete details of reservations and visits.

Also on the trail of the Mediterranean culture of bulls is the bullring, the plaza de toros, in Ronda. It is one of the first in the country if not the first (they vie with Sevilla for that accolade) and the museum is a fascinating socio-cultural experience. Well worth exploring when next you visit.
