On Sunday, September 26, 2011 in Catalonia, Spain, history was made before a sold out crowd of 20,000 people.  The region held it’s last bullfight within Barcelona’s Monumental bullring featuring matadors José Tomás and Serafín Marín.  Fans bid the custom farewell, compliments of new animal rights laws passed last year by the Catalan regional Parliament.  Sentimental spectators took handfuls of sand from the stadium home as souvenirs.  Here’s The Last Bullfight In Barcelona.
