The bullring is open to the general public all year round and the visit includes the Bullfighting Museum, the Royal Harness Collection and the Antique Firearms Collection.Corporacion nobiliaria cuyos origenes se remontan a 1572, la Real Maestranza mantiene en la actualidad un patrimonio historico y artistico unico en Espana por su singularidad y caracter, relacionado con el mundo de la caballeria, la equitacion y la tauromaquia. Bajo los tendidos de su monumental Plaza de Toros, que data de finales del siglo XVIII, se encuentran la Sala de Tauromaquia y las colecciones de Guarnicioneria y Armas de Fuego Antiguas, en su conjunto un importante reclamo turisticos en el casco historico de la romantica ciudad de Ronda, a escasa distancia de Malaga y la Costa del Sol, y accesible todos los dias del ano en horario ininterrumpido.

You should check the operating hours of the bull fight to make the visit worthwhile! or else, dont waste your time to get into the empty hall

The bull ring is a lovely place to visit, packed with historical information and kept in pristine condition. Great value for money and highly recommend a visit if in the area.

If Ronda is one of the most stunning places in Spain, then the Plaza de Toros is one of its most significant attractions. Bigger, older and more splendid than any other bull ring in the world, it is a "must see". Do try to visit when the riders and horses from the riding school are practising their dressage and do...

This is great to get a feel of the culture and history of Ronda, thoroughly enjoyable and very interesting. I don't agree with bullfighting, but the stadium and the museum are interesting and worth a visit.

Although I am unsure of my feeling toward bull fighting it is a huge part of the Spanish culture and History and therefore we made this a part of our tour of Spain. I do not regret it one bit. We watch a horse riding lesson and walked through the museum to learn about bull fighting. We entered the rink... More

They tell you is one of the oldest and most impressive plazas de toro ... Well it if certainly the most beautiful I have seen. Impressive feeling when you are in the middle of the arena and very interesting to walk around the various buildings.

Nice and picturesque bullfight ring, with some decorative drawings on its walls. The stairs to the higher floors are also decorated with beautiful painted tiles. Short (for the money - 7 EUR for ticket), but interesting trip to the past of Spanish tradition.

Firstly I must say that we are dead against bullfighting but still went to visit the bullring, apparently one of the first and biggest in Spain. It is still used in the summer months but we visited in January where it was open to see without the barbaric events that go on here. It is certainly worth a good half... More

This bullring was beautiful, clean and you can imagine heaps of people and bulls fighting when you stand in the centre of the arena. The whole township of Ronda is beautiful and this is its centre piece. The museum within the walls was also really well done. Enjoyable afternoon. 😀

Technically Spain's oldest bull ring, I have wanted to visit here for years. I found it quite upsetting to see the narrow passageways o the bull's route in to the ring and could imagine it full at a 5k capacity with everyone cheering. Still, in spite of the thoughts of distressed animals, it was still a sight to behold. In... More
