El Añadío


The Hotel

El Añadío is a fighting bulls temple for life in liberty. Fitur Active Tourism 2017 prize in Culture category. Knowing the cows’ life is the clue to the bravura of the males- and of the bulls. The fighting bulls breeding culture in this virginal natural landscape is a challenge for those who would like to find out about this King of the Iberian meadow as form birth.
The farmhouse has a main building where the rooms the main dinning room and the drawing room are, as corresponds to an Andalusian manor house. The favourite spot is a big traditional fireplace flanked by two large windows with wrought iron. It is through those windows that one sees the bulls when they come to feed in the trough. 400 kg bulls within our reach, while we have a drink or a cup of coffee by the fireplace.
