At the 18th centuy the pedestrian bullfighters take the place of the horse knights at the bullfighting.. At this age it appears in Ronda the Romero family, which, during three generations, brings the most singular bullfighters of that age. Among them, the most important was Pedro Romero (1754-1839), main and most representative figure of the Bullfighting Art. He retired after bringing to death to more than 5000 bulls without suffering any kind of injure. His character and personality achieved the respect and social aknoledgement of the bullfighter's trade, due to the addition of courage, hability and sthetical beauty that it brings.

The rise of bullfighting led the Royal Cavalry of Ronda to build its famous bullring, made by Martín de Aldehuela, the same architect of the great New Bridge over theTajo of Ronda.
