The bull chases a man as they take part in the 'El toro de la Vega' (The bull of the plain) bullfight, 13 September 2005 in Tordesillas. On the second Tuesday of September, since the fifteenth century the village has celebrated this very special bullfight. The arena of the bullfight is the plain across the river from the village and it is up to a number of young men with lances to dispute the honour of making the fatal strike. (c) Pedro ARMESTRE
