This magnet souvenir from Spain may appeal to you if you appreciate something that presents a certain scene found in real life as a result of culture, or you may simply like it as it has a great deal of energy in order to highlight the grace of the proceedings exhibited. One thing is for sure, any Spaniard who sees this is bound to be reminded of home.

Toreros in Details
One thing is for sure, not everybody is suited to bullfight or to watch bullfighting. Even though there has been lots of opposition throughout the time, bullfighting is still a performance that attracts thousands of fans in Spain. And this shows. Just pick a magazine and the traveler will be surprised that toreros share the same fame as actors or members of Spanish and European royalty.
It is no wonder as their performances are received with enthusiasm and each Spanish man or woman has his or her own favorite torero. There have been great bullfighters in the history of this controversial sport. One of the most famous ones was El Cordobes whose fame transcended the Iberian peninsula and he was widely recognized in many Latin American countries in the late Seventies. It was funny to find posters featuring his public appearances on the walls of many houses in Chile and Argentina. All in all, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home and share your views on this sport.
