Tour Detail

• Bullfights take place on the street, with the perimeter outlined with white lines on the ground, indicating how far the bull can go, settlers on walls and balconies duly covered with wooden protections to prevent the animal from attacking.

• The show starts at 6:30 p.m. in the summer, being anticipated as the days get shorter, but the party starts early in the morning with the choice of bulls in the field, where outdoor lunches are held, often accompanied by Music and play with little bulls in the `tentaderos` of the cattlemen.

• A few hours before the bullfight, the four chosen bulls are placed in appropriate wooden Boxes, transporting them to the site followed by a caravan decorated with hydrangeas, an abundant plant inside the island.

• At 6:30 p.m., the rocket announcing the beginning of the bullfight is launched, at which time the animal leaves the box, after having been tied a rope around its neck, and having protective balls placed on its horns.

• In order for the bull not to exceed the lines that delimit the festival grounds, the rope, which is between 90 and 100 meters long, is caught by 'shepherds', usually between seven and ten, divided into two groups.

• An important figure is the "capinhas", who "throw a step" at the bull, causing the animal to charge with open umbrellas and sweaters, which replace the covers used in bull arenas.

• Anyone can risk 'playing' with the bull, just for the sake of it, since there are no paid 'capinhas', just as no one pays ticket to watch the show.

Traditionally, women stand on balconies while men walk through the street, fleeing or climbing walls, gates and electricity poles as the bull approaches, the most fearless being those who do not stray too far from the animal.

• The bull cannot be in the street less than 15 minutes, no more than half an hour, and the retrieval to the box is signaled again by a rocket.

• In the intervals between each bull, the population takes advantage of snacks and food at the canteen trucks installed in the place or in the large tables made available by those who live in the area where the bullfight is.

• In the end, the party continues with the  'eat and drink', sometimes accompanied by music, which the locals call the 'fifth bull'.
