Iptc.CaptionGarlin is a small town in south west france. The climax of the annual feast is the traditionnal novillada. In a corrida the bulls are aged at least four years old (toros) whereas in a novillada the bulls are only aged at least three years old (novillos), the torreros are novilleros who have not taken the alternativa, a ceremony in which they are proposed and seconded by two other matadors and thereby graduate from novillero to matador.
