Monument to Bullfighting

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.

Unveiled in 2002, it represents three matadors, a picador and an alguacilillo (the horseman who leads the parade into the bullring before the bullfight starts). Behind this sculptural group is an allegory of life and death, in which two female figures sail in a boat.

Camas is the birthplace of great bullfighters, including Paco Camino and Curro Romero, among others. This monument pays tribute to the many matadors, picadors and banderilleros who were born in this Sevillian town throughout history.
