Valencia & The Rest of Spain


“...La Entrada is the culmination of weeks—maybe even months—of suspense, yet it lasts a matter of seconds: horsemen charge through a dense crowd at full speed, herding the bulls between them. To be one of the horsemen requires the utmost skill and training, and this year, one of them is sixteen, less than half the age of the others. It’s his first Entrada, and both nervousness and pride seep from his eyes as he sits astride his horse before it starts; his father, mounted beside him, reflects only pride and equanimity.”
