2 reviews of Nimeño II Statue

A tribute to a legend

The love of bullfighting can be seen in the south of France, and nowhere more so than in Nimes. Facing the famous arena is a statue of the matador Nimeño II, one of the most famous local bullfighters. This promising matador was savaged by a bull on September 10, 1989, and became a paraplegic. Although he gradually regained some mobility, he could never return to the ring, and hanged himself in his garage in 1991.
