Bullfights

Booked a cruise from Barcelona next (2014) sept. Leaves on Sunday, but I want to see a bullfight. Are there cities that would have bullfighs mid week so I can catch my boat on Sunday?

There is a season to bullfights but don't the dates. Think it starts around Easter. You can probably research that on goggle. When the bullfights are in season there are performances in the middle of the week.

Pooping out in September. Done by end of October. Best bet for a city with a major airport is Madrid. No fights at all in Catalonia. Fat chance on anything except Sunday.

I am sorry Ed but ten years ago we did attend a bullfight in Madrid on Wednesday. It was a couple of weeks prior to Easter, sort of preseason, and featuring young, new bullfighters.

Sure. There are week-long events all over the place, but that late in the season they're only on Sunday.
