Here’s my entry to this week’s Travel Theme, but with a twist!
Can you guess what this photo is all about?
Edited later to add:
OK, I’ve teased you for long enough! As most have you have correctly guessed, the photo was taken inside a bullring. This particular one is in the city of Antequera, in the province of Málaga.
What I particularly wanted to show you was the burladero (from the Spanish burlar: to evade, to dodge). In regular places around the ring, the wall is pushed outwards leaving splits that allow the bullfighter to take refuge, but which are too narrow for the bull.
The bullring in Antequera dates from 1848 and was rebuilt in 1984 in a style that reflects the city’s diverse architectural influences. It is said to be one of the most beautiful in Spain.
