Flamenco, Spanish Horse Dressage and Bullfight - a delightful evening in Mijas, one of the most beautiful white villages at the Costa del Sol in Spain.

The Quirkiest Bullfight In Spain

    We didn’t know what we were embarking on, when we bought the tickets for the traditional show in Mijas, Spain. Before we had to leave the Costa del Sol in Andalusia we wanted to see Spanish Flamenco and a Spanish Horse Dressage Show. The bullfight coming with the show was the quirkiest ever!

    Mijas is a charming white-washed, traditional mountain village and a vibrating coastal town as well.

    Narrow cobbled, winding streets, occasionally interrupted with charming nooks and crannies decorated with flower pots lead to several small squares.

    It’s a miracle how the Moors built this medieval village on the steep cliffs overlooking the Costa Del Sol and the Mediterranean Sea.

    At the most unlikely place at the very end of the little village, the locals decided to build a small bullring. To fit on the rock they built it in a unique oval shape and with the grandstands only on either opposite side (not around the oval).

    The show started out with Flamenco dancers we enjoyed the dedication of the performers.

    A salesman tried to sell his cool drinks in the sparsely filled rows of the stands.

    Soon a well-trained horse performed Spanish dressage under its young rider, interacting with the Flamenco dancers, telling a dramatic, traditional Spanish story in an artistic way.

    And then … the bull entered the ring! We were most excited!

    Magnificent to keep Spanish traditions alive in this animal-friendly way.  A high-five for the torero and his aid!
