Another torero on the wall

torero on the wall

Although Nîmes is full of wonderful and charming old façades, I decided to show you something different for the CDP’s July theme day. Here we are at the outer ring of Nîmes, where many housing blocks have been built after the Algerian war (I assume). And yes, it is a torero that has been painted on the wall of one of the apartment blocks! Nîmes is famous for its bullfights, and people love them. Not everyone, of course, but many do. And the tauromarhie is a big, big part of the city’s culture.

Clicking here you can see other façades around the world.

And here and here are the previous pictures of the more recent torero wall painting.

P.S. In my Marseille blog there’s another wall painting for the same facade theme!
