mystic_destiny: Thank you too!!!

TekindusT: Thank you!! Actually there aren't many :D but I took elements from other cities too. The Vía Imperial, for example, starts pretty much like the Champs Elysées but it ends being like la Castellana :D

Hazani Pratama: Thank you!!

ggamgus: That's a high rating I don't deserve :D Anyway, thank you!!!

OK, We start. Today don't expect a large update like the previous one, we are going to visit two places in Vistalegre, both of them are small areas unlike the last update. So we start (now!)

Plaza de toros Monumental: (Monumental Bullring) Built in 1927 and revamped in the mid '60s, it's Vistalegre's only bullring. Bullfighting has been a popular entertainment in the country for ages, despite being offset by football in the mid XXth century. They used to be bullfights every week but since the '80s or so, they decreased its number enormously, so now the bullfights take place only three weeks a year, during the Feria de San Lorenzo. It's too a very controversial show, being very criticized by animal-rights supporters. Anyway, it's still a popular entertainment nowadays and a major tourist attraction.

Well, here are the pics of the bullring and the square in front of it:

The New Iberian Senate: As I said in the Parliament update, the Parliament has two Chambers, being one the Congress (the old one in the 7th update) and the other one the Senate. This Chamber was introduced in the latest Constitution, and its building was built in the early '70s (it was in another building before) with a singular shape:
