21st "Running Teulada"
BULL-RUNNING - The famous bull running event is held in Teulada in April
Large, generally aggressive bulls are let loose in designated streets to chase after those who think they are fast enough to jump out of their way, run behind the many wooden barricades or into the steel cages set up for their protection, to avoid being gored. Bull running is not for the faint hearted, and definitely best left to those with more experience as it is not as easy as it looks. The bulls can be fast and people - often foreigners - do get hurt every year.
