DID YOU KNOW…?
Have you ever wondered why there are Lidia Bulls along the roads?
The Osborne bull is the silhouette of a fighting bull, approximately fourteen meters high, originally conceived as a large roadside billboard to promote the Osborne Group’s Veterano Jerez brandy.
Although the initial function was advertising, with the passing of time and cultural roots it has become, going beyond the limits of the commercial brand of this company, a cultural symbol of Spain.
In 1958 is when the first fences made of wood began to be installed, which only measured 4 meters, unlike the current ones that are metallic and measure the 14 meters mentioned above.
Today there are 91 left. Andalusia (24), Castilla León (14), Castilla – La Mancha (13) and the Valencian Community (11) are the communities with the most samples.
