Spain- España

This bookmarks are from Spain one from Andalucia and the other from Sevilla.

Flamenco is popularly depicted as being the music of Andulusian gitanos (gypsies) but historically its roots are in mainstream Andalusian society, in the latter half of the 18th century.[note 1] Other regions, notably Extremadura and Murcia, have also contributed to the development of flamenco, and many flamenco artists have been born outside the gitano community. Latin American and especially Cuban influences have also contributed, as evidenced in the dances of "Ida y Vuelta".

Bullfighting (also known as tauromachy, from ταυρομαχία – tavromachia, "bull-fight"; or as corrida de toros in Spanish) is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, southern France and some Latin American countries (Mexico,Colombia,Venezuela,Peru and Ecuador, in which one or more bulls are baited in a bullring for sport and entertainment. It is often called a blood sport by its detractors but followers of the spectacle regard it as a fine art and not a sport as there are no elements of competition in the proceedings.

There are many historic fighting venues in the Iberian Peninsula, France and Latin America. The largest venue of its kind is the Plaza de toros México in central Mexico City, which seats 48,000 people,[3] and the oldest is the La Maestranza in Sevilla, Spain, which was first used for bullfighting in 1765
