Photo: Bull Statue Plaza De Toros El Puerto De Santa Maria Cadiz Spain

A bull statue stands guard outside the world famous and oldest operational Plaza de Toros, aka bullfighting arena, in El Puerto de Santa Maria in the province of Cadiz in Andalusia, Spain.

The bull statue outside the Plaza de Toros bullfighting arena in the town of El Puerto de Santa Maria in the Province of Cadiz, in beautiful Andalusia, Spain, is a reminder of what the building is used for and what has been going on there for many years.

Bullfighting is something that Spain has always been a part of, and it's a part of their heritage, regardless of the fact that many nations around the world do not condone it and there are still many protests against it. Many say that it is a form of animal cruelty as the bull is repeatedly stabbed with darts and forced to charge the matador until finally he succumbs to his injuries and dies in the ring.

This bullring is one of the oldest bullrings still in operation in Spain, and was built between the years of 1779 and 1785. Many still come here today, not only to see a bullfight, but to visit the museum that is located on the grounds and to see a living piece of Spanish history. This has quite a rural location however, so when it does host a bullfight it is quite popular and people will make the effort to come out and see it here.
