LA CORRIDA DE TOROS
A predominantly Spanish pastime, la corrida de toros (Spanish for “the running of the bulls”) is a popular
spectacle in the capital city of Madrid. At the Plaza de Toros Las Ventas, crowds numbering in the
thousands pay to watch costumed matadors challenge bulls that have been carefully bred for the corrida.
According to the bullfighting ethic, an accomplished matador will maneuver the bull gracefully and kill it
in a manner that is both courageous and aesthetically unrepugnant. Though the spectacle has its detractors,
the bullfight is deeply ingrained in Spanish culture and is reflected in the art and literature of Spain. It has
been called “indefensible but irresistible.”

Don Quijote de la Mancha
El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote de la
Mancha (The Ingenious Knight Don Quixote of la Mancha), better known simply
as Don Quijote was written by Miguel de Cervantes Saadevra and is by far the most
well-known Spanish literary piece ever written. It has been translated, fully or in parts,
into more than 60 languages.
This novel was written in two parts: Part I in 1605 and Part II in 1615. It was originally
conceived as a comic satire against the chivalric romances then in literary vogue. It
narrates the adventures of an elderly knight, Don Quijote, and his horse Rocinante and
squire Sancho Panza.

WHAT IS A GUANACO?
A guanaco is a large mammal that
lives in South America and is related
to the llama. It is bigger than a llama
and not domesticated. They mainly
eat grass and live in the mountains.
WHAT IS A VICUÑA?
The smallest of all camels, the vicuna weighs
about 90 pounds and stands just under three
feet at the shoulder. Like all South America
camel species, the vicuna has a long, supple
neck; slender legs; padded, cloven feet; large
round eyes; and a dense and fine tawny coat.
Alpacas are a domesticated member of the
camel (camelid) family. The camelid family
also includes llamas, guanacos, and vicunas
from South America, and the Bactrian and
Dromedary camels from Asia and
Africa. This family of animals originated on
the plains of North America about 10 million
years ago. A common ancestor to the South
American camelids migrated to South
America about 2.5 million years ago.

• Flamenco is a generic term for a song repertory,
dance, and guitar style from the Andalusian region
of Spain. The music is based on a harmonic
system closely related to Arabic music. It is also
driven by the complex North African cross-
rhythms that have made their way into the region.
The flamenco guitar functions as both solo and
accompanying instrument featuring lively melodic
passages, percussive strumming, and improvised
