Bullfighting is defined as ... It's a festival that was born in Spain in the 12th century, but that is also practiced or was practiced in other parts of the world, like Portugal, Francia, the United States or Hispanic America.
It became a very popular and charasterictic festival of Spain, but today this is changing. Bullfighting is considered by many, mostly young people, as animal mistreat. Many organizations fight against it.
This has created a division in the population. On the one hand, we have the people who supports the tradition, and on the other hand we have the ones who are totally against it and want it to finally end.
Inside of Spain there are some autonomous communities in which bullfighting is more popular than in others. For example Andalusia is one of the communities with more followed of the festival. In many promotional videos of the region bullfighting can be seen. And many souvernirs that tourists buy also represent this festival.
Affortunately, this isn't like this in every autónomos community. There are regions like rte Canary Islands or Catalonia in which it is already forbidden. And there are others like Galicia or the Balearic Islands in which they don't do bullfighting.
Animalists hope that it's this way soon in all the country.
That's the translation to Engish more or less. It's a very general essay but I hope it's useful in some way. I am totally against bullfighting and I hate it so I don't know a lot about it, like when they are usually done or famous bullfighters.
