Men stand on the truck that carries the dead bull during the bull of the plain 'Toro de la Vega' festival, on September 15, 2009 in Tordesillas. 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'.  © Pedro ARMESTRE.
