Tip: The bullfighting season in Seville is relatively short. If you are travelling around Spain and happen to spend some time in Madrid, have a look at the official schedule to check if some date fits your itinerary. Madrid’s season is the longest in the world so chances are there will be a bullfight while you are there. And purchase them as early as you can!
