TRAVEL with pat and lew

* Collioure … the bull ring is gone but the market is still here … the priorities are exactly correct

Posted by Lew Weinstein on June 10, 2012

One of the great pleasures of Collioure is the farmers’ market

… every Sunday and Wednesday

… fresh vegetables for tonight’s salad, and flowers for our table

Collioure’s bull ring was used once a year. We went some years ago and found it utterly barbaric. See …  https://patandlewtravel.wordpress.com/2007/02/23/bullfights/ …  When we returned last week, they were just finishing turning the space into a much-needed parking lot. Apparently, they have been banned in much of northern Spain, and southern France has followed suit. So, last year, Kevin & Dawn saw the last bullfights in Collioure.
