  • Description

    An unusual event in Santa Isabel de Fernando Poo capital of Spanish Guinea: the first bull-fight with professional fighters in Equatorial Africa.

    The ring, completely built with domestic wood, can be easily disassembled.

    The natives are initiated in the different phases of the sport: the rider does his best....
    Santa Maria and Picazo are the two young "novilleros" (fighters of young bulls) who are going to confront these beasts .... High passes resembling the "giraldinas" .... this way of eluding the bull is certainly something new for the natives .... The hour of the kill ....
    Among the picturesque notes of the "corrida" is the motor which substitutes the mules in dragging away the beasts.
