This is one of the premier bull fight venues in the world. Don't go unless you read about this sport, and understand a little. The animal rights comments on this forum are silly, of course, but reflect the propensity of tourists to visit sites or events without doing some background research. It's like visiting Chapultepec without knowing that a young... More

We attended a spectacle in September of 2013. Both of us had been looking forward to this event. Bullfighting is a cultural aspect of the country.

Yesterday we attended the bullfight at the Plaza Mexico, the largest (seating capacity) bull ring in the world. One might ask why a civilized fellow like myself would go to the bullfight. I don’t like to kill things…I don’t hunt or fish and I scoop up bugs and throw them outside. For me, the bull fight has little to do... More

The Biggest Bull Plaza in the Word 50,000, this a cultaral place place, with a lot of history and traditions. The big season starts in november and ends in march. It is some thing to see and hear because the beuatiful Suits and the Music is also a mix from Spain and Mexico.
