The brave Iberians are holding out against Julius Caesar, like Asterix and his friends. So when Chen Huevos y Bacon’s son is taken hostage, who better to rescue him than the Gauls?
Taking him home to Hispania, now Spain, they tangle with the tourist industry and flamenco, and face a wild aurochs in the arena – or bullring. And can it be true? Cacofinix finds a fan in little Pepe!
