Bull fight 
Have you ever been to Spain before? And did you always want visit a bullfight but never did? Something just doesn’t seem right watching a Matador shooing the bull and stabbing it for it to die eventually. In Portugal rules are very different. The Matador has to keep the bull alive. Hence, here a visit to a bull fight is a real spectacle with respect for the animal. In the near vicinity of our villas you can find a bullring and go to a fight one day.

Especially Santarém has a large arena. This city holds a special place in the history of bullfighting. In the 19th century the rules for Portuguese bull fighting were established. The performances in the arena, the season runs from Easter to All Saints, are high standard. In early June on the Campo da Feira do Ribatejo, a major agricultural fair (Feira do Ribatejo) is held. You’ll be treated on vocal and dance performances, bull fights and a parade of the Campinos ( bull guardians.) Really worth a visit.
