Last bullfighting day at the 'La Monumental' bullring in Barcelona
epa02935670 Watched by thousands of spectators, Spanish bullfighter Jose Tomas (R) challenges the bull during the last bullfighting day at the 'La Monumental' bullring in Barcelona, on 25 September 2011. The bullfights on Sunday, 25 September, marked the end of an era: The closure of the Monumental - in keeping with a bullfighting ban in the north-eastern region of Catalonia - reflects the decline of bullfighting in Spain, though fans of the country's national fiesta vow to fight on. Catalonia, a wealthy region of 7.5 million people, has spearheaded the campaign against bullfights, or corridas, in a country where animal rights activism is on the rise.
