These bullfighting capes are called Capote and are made with a special fabric of alive color, generally pink and yellow. These are the capes that the bullfighters use at the beginning of the fight. Whereas the verb “capotear” implies to make movements with the cape in front of the bull, as well as to direct the bull with the cape.
Do you want to know more about our bullfighting capes? The most common movement executed with the capote is the “Veronica”, consisting of waiting for the attack of the bull, having the extended cape held with both hands, and placing the leg by the side where the exit is given to the bull, and then moving the cape to accompany the movement of the brave bull. This movement is called Veronica because it reminds the cape of the virgen of the spanish processions.
