A few snaps of my visit to Southern Spain last year
  • A few snaps of the oldest Bullring in Spain that I visited last year in Ronda (To all you Spain n00bs, a bullring is a place where spics maim innocent animals)

    If you're ever in the south of Spain I urge you to go to Ronda, the architecture is exquisite and the bridge in the last pic is breathtaking.

  • I must admit I was a bit hesitant about visiting as I don't want to support such a barbaric activity but it was a lovely building and a great insight in to a Spanish tradition.
     
  • Holidaying in vi country and wanton use of exclamation marks :roll:

    You might have smee and bosh fooled but the game's up now simmo or should I say blokefromlondon?

    Half finished buildings everywhere around Marbella. That might also be to do with the arse falling out of their economy too though!
     
  • Seemingly leaving buildings mostly built is or was a way of getting around tax in private residences in Spain. Though this was a few years ago I heard it and could've been complete horse shit.
     
  • These were mostly Holiday developments that couldn't be sold. Hundreds left standing doing fuck all.
     
  • Oh, likely the arse falling out of the economy so. When I was in Bilbao, there were loads of houses that were mostly finished with people living in them. The reason I was given was above.

    Nice pics though :thumbup:
     
  • Half built walls eh?

    The evidence is mounting
     
  • I've heard that too. I'm sure it's something to do with if you leave it half built as though you're going to put another floor on top you don't pay tax on it or something. Looks fucking shit :spaz:

    You do realise I've posted several pictures of myself over the years.
     
  • I can't fault the dedication
     
  • :toppa: !!!!!
     
  • I am believing what I want to believe, and I believe that bridge is epic.
     
  • We drove over it to get to where that pic was taken and you wouldn't think anything of it. When you get a couple of miles out and see it from that perspective it is phenomenal!
     
  • The bridge is okay but it's no ruined wall in france :shant:
     
  • The most famous bullring in España (Spain to Spanish n00bs) is the one in Sevilla, I went there myself last summer

    I also went to Marbella, Puerto Banus is ace. Saw some of the only way is Essex lads there (they film the only way is Marbella there)
     
  • I lived in Marbella for the summer of 2001 (start of may - end of Sept) no big deal imo.

    But not the oldest as you claimed previously!
     
  • Some more of Ronda and some of Gibraltar, which has very few redeeming features other than the giant rock.

    pretty nob headish thing to say tbf, like saying you abhor fox hunting but pop along and clap because you like their red jackets.

    gibraltar is quality btw, the fucking monkeys are epic :adore: :adore:
     
  • I'm pro fox hunting but anti bull fighting. Foxes are vermin and should be hunted.
     
  • People who say that usually end up joining gun clubs.

    I didn't say I abhor it. I just wouldn't go watch or even think it should go on. Equally I wouldn't want beautiful buildings to be bulldozed if it was banned!
