Gerardo Abril Anton (2nd L) stands with his two sons on the plain opposite the village of Tordesillas as they wait for the arrival of the bull, 13 September 2005. On the second Tuesday of September, since the fifteenth century the village has celebrated a very special bullfight called 'Le Toro de la Vega' (The bull of the plain). 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
