Seville, beautiful and diverse

The Monument to Bullfighting is located in the middle of a roundabout in the working-class La Pañoleta neighbourhood in Camas, near the town’s old bullring. The cast bronze monument, weighing 3 tonnes, was created by the Sevillian artist Jaime Gil Arávalo.

The monument, located in the square of the same name, is the work of the sculptor Collaut Valera. The bronze statue depicts the bullfighter in a proud and victorious pose after finishing the fight, while the mortally wounded bull lies on the ground with its limbs extended. The sculpture faithfully reflects Joselito after completing the “tercio de muerte” or the death stage.
