Interesting site. Guide was informative in giving history of the Plaza. Well worth a visit and a climb up to sit in the stands.

Pure and authentic. Tour is about $15-20. Before starting you'll have to give your ID in which they'll give you a talking device. At the end of the self guided tour, you'll receive your ID back when you return your device. There are 12 stops that Will describe this amazing arena. Tour takes less than 2 hours.

We went with 3 young kids and were not sure if they would be interested, but they thought it was great. This is the oldest bull fighting ring in Spain so you get a mix of history as well as a background to bull fighting. The kids were glued to their audio guides as we went round, and enjoyed pretending... More

Wanted to see a bullring whilst in Spain (not a bullfight). As it wasn't busy it was easy to get a feel for the size. The small museum (guns, outfits & horse kit mainly) was interesting and getting to see how behind the scene gates etc worked whilst it was quiet was o.k. If you're in the area & have... More

Very nice and interesting place in the beautiful town of Ronda. Here in the museum you can see the very interesting history of toreros. Sitting on the tribunes one can feel the past.

Being one of the oldest bullrings in Spain, it really has a special feeling about it. We walked it through without the audioguides, which I do not regret, since the museum, that is part of the bullring, gives you a lot of information. The Goya paintings and the "backstage" of the bullring were really interesting too.

Have visited Ronda a couple of times and the Bull Ring is a must see attraction. The Bull Ring has a museum where you can view all types of artifacts and also a magnificent collection of guns

Take the salt guided tour. It's nice to see behind the scene of an actual bullring. The Ronda Plaza de Toros I believe it is one of the oldest if not the oldest bullrings in Spain. It has a small museum also.

We paid for the audio tour. They give you a handset each and you walk around whilst listening to your handset guide ( a sort of cordless phone). You do this at your own pace. Be aware, there are around 40 different commentary points, which takes a long time if you want to listen to all of them. Allow at... More
