Spain – Sanucar de barrameda: between history and entertainment

Sanucar de barrameda

Who among you has never dreamed of taking a gallop on a very long beach? …. well think that in Spain it was right here that horse racing began in the mid-nineteenth century. Initially they were goliardic occasions to challenge each other between horse owners, but today, in Spain, it is a very heartfelt opportunity, and thousands of people of any age and social class, in those days, flock to the beach along the whole straight of over 6561 ft in order to incite the thoroughbreds to their passage. The show begins when the sun begins to set , the heat of Andalusia in August becomes bearable, and the tide goes out. Stages are set up above sand dunes, from which you can admire the galloping horses, on the track bounded between the beach of Bajo de Guía and Las Piletas .. Discover now all our trips, tours, holidays and horse trekking in Spain. Over 20 thoroughbred races are held at this unique racecourse these days, and the dates vary each year according to the tides, so there can be enough shoreline to gallop along. Since 1997 this event has become of international interest, although the races are not important from the point of view of the prize money, but they are certainly unique in their kind and anyone who passes by there at the end of August, must absolutely not fail to go and give a look, because the atmosphere is truly amazing!
