No idea how you would get there because you did not tell us where you are coming from.

How would you get there from where? It would make a difference whether you're originating from Madrid or Cambodia.

The bullfight in Ronda is on the 8 September (the Parador is offering a special package), and 22, 23 & 24 September in Sevilla. Nothing happening in Torremolinos on those dates that I am aware of.

Ronda Feria Goyesca de Pedro Romero
Toros Núñez del Cuvillo
Matadors: Rivera Ordóñez, El Fandi & Talavante

I´m currently spending some days near Málaga and passed by Torremolinos yesterday. There are some very minor bullfights scheduled until the first week of September...but probably not much worth it.

Mikel, if you stay around for another week, I recommend to go and see close to legend Carrete in Torremolinos on September 7. He's the Fred Astaire of flamenco and a true gentleman. Born in Antequera some 70 years ago, but he has spent most of his life dancing in Torremolinos. The past years he has toured the most important festivals and theaters. In 2007 he danced his autobiography in "Yo no sé la edá que tengo", and he literraly doesn't.

Next Friday he dances in Tablao Pépe López in Torremolinos: http://www.tabernaflamencapepelopez.com/

Not much beat the food up in your Basque country, but the Málaga coast Conchas finas are up there for sure. Pure sea!

I just hope the bull wins. It's a savage activity.
