Description: Beyond the Iberian peninsula most people are rather uncomfortable about...
Beyond the Iberian peninsula most people are rather uncomfortable about bullfighting, which makes a visit to this venerable bullring with attached museums all the more fascinating – not least for those who would never consider attending a bullfight. An inspection of the ring, and the backstage facilities that sustain it (the Plaza, of necessity, has its own ER) is a good counterpoint to a browse around a museum which is full of artwork and costumes celebrating the skill of the matador together with the mounted heads of their animal nemeses. Go with an open mind and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of bullfighting’s place in the life and culture of Andalucía.

We will never visit this place to see bull fight, but had enough curiosity to see how this arena and museum look like. They are very well organized and they are trying very hard to find excuse for this fight. We understood tradition, but still don't support harassment of living being.

Although neither my husband nor I would wish to witness the cruelty of a bull fight, he wanted to tour the Bull ring. Personally, I presumed it would be a bit of a bore! I was quite surprised! The close-up view of the ring was quite a site - regardless of being empty! The guide was quite informative and between... More

An impressive and educational guided tour through the interior and some exterior of the plaza de Toros. It's carried out in Spanish and English in each tour by a very knowledgable guide who imparts many facts and info which myself, my hubby and our 12 year old son greatly enjoyed. It takes about an hour.

If you are a Game of Thrones fan you have to go here. This is where the big fight scene was held between the Prince from Dorn and the brother of the Hound. Also, in the real world it is a beautiful bull ring with some small, but decent exhibits inside.

The tour was well organised and bi-lingual which was most appreciated. The arena was spotless and there was no cover-up of the brutality of a bullfight so one could imagine the drama that takes place there. Only comment and I don't know how you solve this is after the guide had spoken in Spanish and started to repeat the message... More
