The origins of the event are still debated today but most historians agree that games involving men and bulls were held in both Greece and ancient Rome.
It was during the reign of John II that the first dedicated bull fighting rings were build in Spain. It is a pastime that has had both support and opposition from authorities through the ages and which has inspired poets such as Garcia Larca, painters such as Picasso and writers of the caliber of Hemingingway.
While it might be a national sport for Spain, there are hundreds of people who are against such killing of the bulls.
Just two days before the first bull run every year, hundreds of activists - most wearing little more than a red scarf and plastic horns - ran through the streets of Pamplona for the "Running for the Nudes". Compassionate and fun loving people from around the world met in Pamplona for the run, to show the city that it doesn't ned to torture animals for tourism.
