LA VAQUILLA MUSEUM

The aim of this museum is to create a place with contents that explain the story and meaning of our Festival. It is a modern space, with distinctive design and explanatory panels, display stands and things given by the Turolenses. All of them show us reasons of the Festival that were hidden or had been forgotten.

The installation of the Vaquilla Museum is made into two thematic spaces with a remarkable difference. The route starts in the area reserved for the bullfighting staff. The prominent figures of “toreo” Turolense, the elements of the bullfighting and the history of the bullring, that is the history of our city.

Next to this thematic area, we can go to the next part of this installation: The Vaquilla del Angel describes us step by step the three days that this Festival lasts. From the beginning with the Salve of the Guardian Angel –Salve del Angel Custodio, going on with the Auction of the Boxes, the Little Bell (Campaníco) and the setting of the scarf to El Torico, the traditional snack on Sunday evening, the “toro ensogado”, and  the history of the old and new “peñas”

Date of opening: the first Friday of April.

Closing date: Last Sunday of October.

 

Timetables:
