As you travel around Ecuador join the annual November bullfighting festival in Quito's Plaza de Toros Belmonte. During the festival you can see matador and bull come face to face to the sounds of Spanish flamenco songs. This is not just any bullfight, but a unique bullfight festival that is also about paying respect to the Virgin of Triana and accompanied by music, lights, and dancing.
