The Canary Isles were the first to ban bullfighting in 1991 and today Catalonia follows.
The parliament voted to ban the sport from the 1st January 2012 - 68 voted for the ban, 55 against and 9 abstentions.
The vote took place as a result of a petition presented to parliament and signed by 180,000 people.
Many people believe bullfighting is cruel and barbaric but also many nationalistic Catalans wish to mark their difference from the rest of Spain.
Whether other regions will follow is hard to say .. perhaps in a few years.
