Tourada à cordatoirada à corda ou corrida de touros à corda, é um divertimento tauromáquico tradicional nos Açores, com particular expressão na ilha Terceira, acreditando-se ser a mais antiga tradição de folguedo popular do arquipélago.

A modalidade tauromáquica é específica dos Açores e caracteriza-se pela corrida de 4 touros adultos da raça brava da ilha Terceira ao longo de um arraial montado numa rua ou estrada, num percurso máximo que regra geral é de 500 m.

Bullfighting rope, is a traditional bullfighting fun in the Azores, with particular expression on the island of Terceira, believed to be the oldest tradition of popular fun in the archipelago.

The bullfighting modality is specific to the Azores and is characterized by the race of 4 adult bulls of the brave race of Terceira island along a camp mounted on a street or road, in a maximum course that is usually 500 m.

The animal is controlled by a rope attached to its neck (hence the name of the type of bullfight) and held by 6 men (the shepherds) who lead the fight and prevent its exit beyond the stipulated road section.

After the fight, the animals are returned to the pastures, being used repeatedly, although with a minimum rest period of 8 days.
