I'm not a fan of bullfighting but I would still recommend this for a visit - the originator of bullrings. Pretty cool. €6.50 entrance fee is worth it for the pictures - amazing looking building and don't miss the opportunity to take some cheesy poses.

It was a Saturday when we were there but the place was so lively with visitors of every nationality and into the evening the local youngsters . The only thing we thought spoilt it was there was a "Mc Donalds " there which in an area with so much culture spoiled it

Like many others we find bullfighting both barbaric and pointless and have some difficulty seeing the "sport" of bullfighting. On that basis would never attend a bullfight. However, as part of a trip we had the experience of seeing the arena and a small museum showing the history of local bullfighting. As a museum its only average and the whole... More

I personally dislike to see and actual bullfight but this place showed more than just a bull ring.History lies hidden underneath the stands.

It's a great place for a walk and refresh your thoughts. Even better at night. You should take a visit, or even better, get a carriage trip.

I can't rate this as terrible because it is what it is : the square. There is the tourist information centre, a few gift shops and an American restaurant which looks totally out of place. In its favour it is only a short walk from the bus station and a starting point before you cross the gorge into the old... More

A few crumby shops, a ghastly American burger joint, ice cream parlour, entrance to the Parador and that's about it! However, this is an important link between the bullring area and the new town and the bridge over to the old town.

This is the best place to be if you want to see the gorge of Ronda or go shopping. Do go to the casco historico, the old town, over the bridge and visit Palacio de Mondragon and Casa de Juan Bosco.

Took 1.5 hours on the train from San Roque (we were told this was part of the experience!) and I wouldn't say it was all that scenic as promised! Then, as we had a toddler and the 8pm train home wasn't an option (and there's only 3 trains a day) we had just over 2 hours until the train back... More

the last thing you want to see in a historic plaza is a big Mc outlet . Get it moved somewhere else.
