CEHEGIN BULLRING

Plaza de don pepe navarro

The Cehegín bullring was the work of Don José Navarro de Cuenca, who was the mayor of Cehegín, with the collaboration of all Cehegineros. The bullring was inaugurated on the 14th of September 1.901, the first bull that jumped into the ring was called "Morisco" from the cattle ranch of Don Esteban Hernández.

The matadors Gerrerito and Jerezano, who replaced Villita, performed. The main figures of bullfighting such as El Gallo, Juan Belmonte and Los Saleri have performed in this bullring. In the 1950s, nationally renowned bullfighting festivals were held, always for the benefit of the Hospital Asilo de la Real Piedad, in which famous but now retired bullfighters such as Villalta, Antonio Sánchez, Los Saleri, etc. took part.

One of the main peculiarities of the bullring is that it is not necessary to use any kind of staircase to access the bullring, as the bullring was built at street level. It has the peculiarity that a tree grew in the sunny side of the bullring, which has remained intact to this day, and has a capacity of 6,340 spectators.

bullring of yecla

The Yecla Bullring was built on 29th September 1867. The idea came from 7 bullfighting enthusiasts from the town who requested the land for its construction and the town council gave it to them free of charge.

According to the chronicles of the time, the premiere was experienced in an atmosphere of total success. Throughout its history, the bullring has hosted bullfighters of the stature of Lagartijo, Rafael González "Machaquito", El chico de la Blusa, Larita, Saleri, Copao, and Ricardo Martínez "Yeclano". The last stage took place between 1969 and 1975, when the Yeclano bullring was closed until 1981, when a bullfighting festival was held in spite of its advanced state of deterioration. And so it remained until 10th July 1988, when the Peña Taurina de Yecla organised the first bullfighting festival.

In this reopening calf bullfight, fans will be present and the proceeds will go to the reconstruction of the bullring in Yecla. The rehabilitation of the Yecla bullring had a budget of 90 million pesetas. It was carried out in three phases. The work was started by the mayor Don Vicente Maeso and completed by Don Domingo Carpena, the president of the Peña Taurina Yeclana being Don Antonio Gonzálvez Martínez. In October of the same year, 1988, the Town Hall, in view of the success of this bullfighting event, undertook the reconstruction of the Yeclán bullring.

Finally, on 14th April 1991, the Yecla Bullring was reopened with a bullfight with bulls from the Marqués de Ruchena and the matadors José Mari Manzanares, José Ortega Cano and Juan Antonio Ruiz "Espartaco". The bullring, classified as third category, registered a full house in the 5,300 seats available. The impresario who managed the inaugural bullfight, together with the Town Hall, was Victoriano Valencia. The band of the Asociación de Amigos de la Música de Yecla was in charge of livening up the bullfighting festivities, which began with the performance of the pasodoble "Gloria al pueblo!

CARAVACA DE LA CRUZ BULLRING

The construction of the Caravaca de la Cruz bullring dates back to 28 September 1880. It was designed by the municipal architect Francisco Riquelme, who conceived a neo-Mudejar style building, characterised by its arches and decoration. It was built on the site of the Franciscan monastery of Santa MarĂ­a de Gracia. The work was completed in a record time of three months. The festivities that took place there soon became famous, thanks to the participation of some of the most outstanding bullfighters of the time.

At the beginning of the 1920s the square closed its doors due to the poor state of the building. In 1925 D. Bartolomé García López bought the building and rebuilt it in its entirety, and it was during this reconstruction that the famous neo-Mudejar façade and the two floors of boxes were built, increasing the capacity to 10,000 seats. It was inaugurated on 4th October 1926 with bulls of the Marqués de Guadales bullfighting by Antonio Márquez, Martín Agüero and Cayetano Ordóñez "Niño de la Palma".
