We were in a dilemma being in the middle of the San Isidro season about watching the actual bull fighting because all Bulls get killed in every fight - (even the ones which don't during the fight) - and decided to go with the public Spaniard preferences. instead we did the bull fighting museum tour and it was outstanding.

Spend 9€ on a ticket to see this place after reading description of tour. All I saw was the inside of the ring seating and a 2 min video. It was advertised ad FREE which it wasn't and when I asked if that was all the tour the assistant laughed and said something in Spanish to other assistance. Even the... More

A lot of info about corrida! Nice if you're interested in it, may cause negative emotions if you're against bull fighting. The place itself is very beautiful

This is an incomprehensible and horrifying tradition. A group of sociopaths gather and applaud as a bull is slowly tortured and killed. It takes a special kind of person to appreciate something like this. Buyer beware.

My husband and I were visiting Spain for the first time and watching bull fight was definitely on our checklist. We were initially planning to leave in just 10mins but it was surprising that we saw 3 bulls fight out of 6. The art of matadors is incredible and a different experience. Though in the end you feel sad to... More

It is bloody, gory, disturbing and fabulous The costumes and pageantry are incredible I was very surprised, expecting to see one bullfight, that there were actually seven Seats are concrete benches and incredibly uncomfortable I don't think I would go a second time but I wouldn't have missed it for anything

We all decided that we would at least like to go and see what bullfighting was all about and we knew roughly what happened. But to actually see it was an eye-opener! Tickets start from 5? at the top of the stadium. Fanfares and horses and matadors in traditional costumes. Then the bull arrives and the fight begins. At first... More

Spanish bullfighting at its best so fun, the tour is a must for people who don't know the rules and should be done before watching a performance. It is so entertaining and in some ways sad (seeing the bull die) Its a great bit of culture and is a MUST DO!
