A carnival that revolves around the world of bullfighting.

During these fiestas, the townspeople live by the bull and for the bull. Bull runs, popular bullfights, releasing of the bulls and amateur bullfights are at the centre of the Carnivals that revolve around the bull. The fiesta begins much earlier. As they say there: 'It has been Carnival since St. Sebastian's Day'. The popular bullfights are just as important as the bull runs and the amateur bullfights. There is one established custom: the 'Bolsín Taurino', whose mission is to look for new talents between the novice bullfighters. The runnings of the bulls on horseback have been revived and there is a 'Horse Club'. The running is quite exciting, since dances are held along the route, which are interrupted as soon as the bull appears.
