We are traveling in Spain during September of this year - 2014 and would like to experience a bullfight. We have flexible dates right now and so would like to know how to decide on these. I looked in the "R. Steves Spain" and went to the websites and so far I have come up with only these dates:
Madrid 9/7,9/14, 10/2 all novillado and 10/3, 10/4,10/5 general which I assume are the experienced matadors.
Sevilla is harder to navigate because the translation page is hard to follow, so I THINK it is 9/27 Saturday and 9/28 Sunday during the San Miguel festival.
Soooo, does anyone have any opinions on these choices?
Are the dates in Sevilla experienced matadors and are tickets available since it is the festival time? Also, is the city too crowded during that time because we are not happy to be there if it is. We like to experience a place during the "real" time. Are there any dates that I am missing?
How much difference is there between the novillado and the experienced?
Any other suggestions?
