Corrida - photos. Part II.


Corrida - one of Spanish traditions.

A normal bullfight consists of three “tercios” and two “suertes”. In Pamplona there is an extra session which is the snack-break after the third bull.

A normal bullfight is divided into three parts - first the "Varas" - where the cape is used to examine the qualities of the bull - second - the "Banderillas" - where the two assistants of the bullfighter attempt to play some darts on the bull's back. The final part is the fight to the death of the bull. In addition, there are two "suertes" - this is the cape work from the bullfighter using two distinct capes - one with a wooden stick as a bar on the cape. In Pamplona, after the third bull, there is the "suertes" (‘luck') of the snack-break, which is usually something more than a snack. Here the people eat and drink heartily and little attention is paid to what is going on inside the ring.

The very first movement is when two horsemen, in all their plumed finery, suddenly burst into the middle of the ring at a gallop. They turn aside in opposite directions and gallop round the arena on each side. When their paths cross the public give a loud OOH ! to acclaim the possible collision which never happens. (Just another of those eternal little rites of San Fermin !)

Then comes the parade of the bull-fighters and their entourage, and all the other people who will have some part to play in the event such as the "picadores" on their horses and carrying their lance, the "banderilleros" who are dressed like the bull-fighters but whose function is to run at the bulls and stick darts into their backs as a preliminary to the bull-fighters work. There are others similarly dressed- the "Peones" - but whose function is simply to play with the bull with their coloured capes so that the bull-fighter can watch the way that the bull charges and turns with his horns. The "Mulillas" also take part in the parade and these are the men and horses which will drag the body of the dead bull from the ring.
