Corrida is a performance that makes your blood boil. Despite the fact that bullfighting opponents have been trying for a long time to forbid the bloody show, the Spanish doesn't want to refuse their genuine tradition.
The main bullfighting place in Seville still makes the locals and city visitors get together here and watch skillful toreadors fighting with furious animal.
How to do?
1. Go to Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, 12. This is the place where the main corrida arena is situated - la Maestranza.
2. Enter the magnificent building. Find you place and sit down. If you bought an expensive ticket you got the seat in the shade and the performance is clearly seen here. If the ticket is cheaper, so stock up with sunglasses, a hat and a fan - you got a seat in a sun facing side and the performance is not so clearly seen here. But if you want to see the fight in general, but not in deatails - this side is quite good as well.
3. After the show don't forget to pop into the restaurant nearby and order a steak made of a bull you've just seen. Of course if the torero got a victory.
