There is a line to get your picture with El Toro. But if you really want it, go for it. Plan to wait. Watch the crowd. You’ll get some good ideas for ways to pose and shots to take. When it’s your turn, make sure to get some good pics. The good news is that it’s free.

    I like your approach to the problem. It should also be noted that there are two lines, one for the front of the bull and one for the back, which is just as popular. Beyond the line, what is really difficult is to get a clear view, without anyone posing.

    El toro means the ox isn’t it?
    The same word as in Arabic with no o at the end.. The Spanish language resembles Arabic..
    Great images..

      Yes, toro means bull. I’m not sure what the difference is between a bull and an ox. I got toro from the Spanish word. Most Americans know the word from stories about bull fighting. Thank you, Sohair.
