Ganadería José Cruz. Finca “Cabezal Viejo”
The finca belongs to the village of La Encina, Salamanca, only 8 Kilometres far from Ciudad Rodrigo. You can enjoy here beautiful holm oaks on different settings: forest, “montanera” lands, valleys and meadows.
The facilities offer a main house, a dinning-room for all kinds of events and horse stables, a beautiful hermitage and the foreman and cowhand´s house. All the places are combined with the nature, looking for balance and harmony. The decoration and tools are related to the fighting bull breeding.
The ganadería is divided into 25 enclosures which have been built for the last years. The vision, romanticism, passion and effort of José Cruz and his family have been able to turn this place into one of the most modern fincas of the region or even of the country.
There is also a trial bullring with a capacity of 30 people, annexed cattle pens and a dock. In this bullring some bullfighters such as Enrique Ponce, Juan Del Álamo and Alejandro Marcos, among others, have bull-fought here.
