Tournament of the Toro de Vega
Date: following Tuesday to the Dia de la Peña, that agrees with the first Sunday after the 8 of September
The tradition of the bull is evident in all the villages of Castilla y León, and the village of Tordesillas is no exception. In the middle of September the Torneo del Toro de Vega (the Bull Tournament of the Plains) is held,. The Tournament is always celebrated on a Tuesday, according to the day of the Virgen de la Villa, on the 8th September. The Sunday after this date is the Día de la Peña , and the first Tuesday after that is the day of the Toro de la Vega.
The festivities consist in a bull weighing more than 500 kilos being released in the town, which then runs from the street Calle de San Antolín, next to the Plaza Mayor, to the bridge over the river Duero before crossing the plains. Horsemen with lances pursue the bull, to fight it face to face.
Holy Week in Tordesillas
This festival is characterised by its tradition, history, art, and above all for the intensity of its celebrations. Fourteen floats make up the general procession on Good Friday.
Some of the fraternities' floats have images of great artistic value, such as La Quinta Angustia (the fifth anguish) of the 16th century and Cristo Atado a la Columna (Christ tied to the column) of 18th century.
