We had mixed feelings about going to a bullfight but it is quintessentially Spanish and is possibly threatened as a spectacle so we went. We were glad we did. The Plaza de Toros was amazing. The locals got right into it with Oles, white handkerchiefs fluttering, and the brass band playing. Kept looking for Hemingway in the crowd. There is... More

The idea of a bullfight may not be to everyone's taste but to many Spanish people it is an intrinsic part of their history and culture. The bullring in Granada is a great place to learn about the history and the modern day reality of this part of Spanish life. The bullring is situated on the edge of the city... More

Plaza de Toros is one of the nicest places I'we seen in Granada, next to Alhambra. You can visit this Toro stadium and after that you can have great meal in the restaurants that are close to this attraction. There are a few great restaurants on the ground floor with domestic food and wines.

I visited Spain for the first time and stayed in Granada. I was excited when I found out that a bullfighting ring was in Granada! Only about a twenty-minute walk from where I was staying. I walked to Plaza de Toros and bought my ticket. I purchased one in the sombra (shade). Spain is hot and I did not want... More

We chose to see the Plaza de Toros to experience something different. After a friendly greeting at the entrance we were given an audio guide, and found ourselves being virtually the only people in the ring. One of the workers there joined us and gave us a very personal tour - he is French and is a matador's assistant on... More

Ok people don't all like the idea of bull fighting but this is worth a visit. We were the only tourists there and were shown round by a very nice and informative Parisian. I hope he and his bosses read this because he was really informative and made the tour very interesting. There were no fights on but the culture... More

Unfortunately we didn’t get to see a bull fight but we did get to walk around the magnificent building completely on our own. It’s a beautiful place that I can imagine is very different when the crowds are in and the bulls are out in the ring.

I went to a bullfight for the first time, mainly out of curiosity. The show is not for the faint of hearted as it is very violent and graphic. I felt I should see an authentic show at least once in my life to try to understand the sport. The seats were extremely cosy as there are lots of people... More

My sister and brother in law took their two kids to look around the interior of the bullring on the penultimate evening of our holiday in Andalucìa. They were slightly disappointed that there was no sort of museum style exhibit to explain things a bit more, and my niece found it unnerving because of all the marks from the bull's... More

My wife and I were touring the lower half of Spain, as well as Catalonia (Barcelona) this past June. I heard of the bullfighting in Spain and really wanted to attend at least one of these events while we were there. Since June was not the regular season for bullfighting, we lucked out and happened to be passing through Granada,... More
