Visit the ranches where traditional Andalusian wild bulls breed.
From Jerez de la Frontera to Algeciras.
From Jerez to Algeciras runs the A-381 road, known as the Ruta del Toro. If you are interested in the world of farming, bullfighting and all the rituals associated with this tradition, you can rent a car and take to this road (passing through surroundings such as Medina Sidonia and Alcala de los Gazules). The route runs alongside the Alcornocales Natural Park, a remarkable setting of 170,000 hectares where you can see its scenic flora and fauna or even catch a glimpse of its birds of prey. Views of ranches, such as 'Cebada Gago', 'Torrestrella' or 'Martelilla', where wild Andalusian bulls graze, extend along the Ruta del Toro. The road leads you to another municipality called Los Barrios, where bullfighting festivals are celebrated, such as the controversial 'toro embolao'.
