Running with bulls is a big attraction in Spain – the meeting of danger and tradition is a heady mix, as are the parties that follow these events. Pamplona is the most famous but many smaller towns let bulls run free during certain festivals. The small but historic city of Teruel in eastern Spain celebrates their patron Saint Christopher with Fiestas del Angel, held on the Sunday nearest his saint’s day (July 10th): July 8th in 2012. The festivities include the usual singing and dancing in the streets and also bulls. Bullfighting is held in the main square with passersby only meters away from the action.
