When are the Bullfights in Bilbao?

Use of the bullring in Bilbao is intermittent - it is used as much for pop concerts as it is for bullfighting. For the last two weeks of August there are the Corridas Generales, a bullfighting festival during which there are fights almost every day.

There is also a good bullfighting museum for when there are no bullfights on.
