Running of the bulls in the town’s streets in honour of San Roque.13/08/2012.
The running of the bulls in blanca dates back from 1658 when its purpose was purely practical – to move the bulls to the bullring. That time the village had only 400 inhabitants, but the build bullring had a capacity for more than 2000 spectators. A clear proof how important the village was in that time for bullfighting. Every year, images of brave (or stupid) souls being gored by bulls are beamed from Blanca to curious and horrified viewers, making the running of the bulls a national attraction.
