A mounted horseman tries to kill the Bull of the Vega in Tordesillas, near Valladolid, 13 September 2005. The festival is one of the oldest in Spain with roots dating back to the fifteenth century. The bull has to be enticed across the river from the village to the plain 'Vega' before it can be killed to honour the 'Virgen de la Pena'. (c) Pedro ARMESTRE
