This was a very interesting place to visit while in Ronda for an afternoon. The entry price is not that steep - 6 euro per person and you have freedom to walk all around the grounds. We also paid 1.50 euro for the audio tour that was sort of a waste. I would recommend walking around the grounds and taking... More

While we did not go to Ronda with the intent of watching a bullfight, we just happened to get tickets to a bullfight. The Plaza de Toros is quite spectacular and impressive. Watching a bullfight in the Plaza de Toros added to the impressiveness of the venue. Prior to going to the bullfight I was not sure what my stance... More

You can only have a headset audio tour most of the year. They should book horse shows or something. We would have paid a good price for an Andalusian horse show in March. But there was nothing. Disappointing.

I have last visited the bullring in June 2014, having been numerous times before, it is well worth the visit, it has the Ernest Hemingway connection, having spent a lot of time in Ronda. reasonable priced. My advice if you are going in July or August, is take a hat and sunscreen, as in the middle of the bull ring... More

Having come from Seville we found the Ronda bull ring to be absolutely fantastic, far better value for money and access to far more areas. The audio guide was very informative and is a definite must if you're interested in its history and bullfighting in general.

A very interesting place to visit, with a small museum of the history bull-fighting. Interesting to follow the route the the bulls would have taken from their pens to the actual bull-ring and you can imagine the atmsosphere that must have been there when the stadium was packed on a hot day! Good value as well, only €6-50 entry!

When visiting this square it is certainly worthwile to look into the interior of the arena which gives a good impression of the style of building and the bull fighting area and everything around this type of sporting.

I do not at all approve of or support bullfighting, but it is a part of Spain's history and culture, and the ring and its small museum are informative and interesting. You can walk right out into the ring and go into the stands. The building is truly beautiful, even though it has a bloody history. You can also go... More

Our son in law Miguel is a great believer in Spanish history and suggested that as we were now living in Spain we should see the historical Plaza de Toros. What a magnificent place, we walked into the ring and I was away I was imagining bulls charging the crowds roaring, yes it has that sort of effect on you.... More

This bullring gives a very real glimpse of Spanish history and culture. Seeing the behind the scenes sights was fascinating. Standing in the middle of the ring, it was easy to imagine the roar of the crowd and the thundering sound of the charging bull. The historical exhibits of clothing was well worth the visit.
