“It is the privilege of beasts to rage about furiously.
It is the duty of man to control himself.”
Ovid 43 BC to 18 AD
Mijas Plaza de Toros
Inside the plaza
The view from the presidential box
114 years old
The old bullring of Mijas a historical monument and museum for a couple of quid you can have a wee walk around this old arena.
I think this plaza is now mainly for the tourists with Spanish dancers, horses and the odd exhibition corrida de toros featuring novilleros.
Mijas is well worth a visit with stunning views out towards the Mediterranean sea.
The post title is from the 1965 film of the same name about a young man that leaves his Andalusian country home in search of riches and fame in the city bull rings. IMDB
