These days the bull ring is used for many events as well as occasional bull fights. It also has interesting museums of firearms and costumes as well as bull fighting items.

We visited a few places during the day this being one of them. €20 for a family of four, extra I think if you have a guide. We however wandered at our own pace and took plenty of photos. A fantastic place to visit even if you don't like the bull fighting side of it it's still a good place... More

We saw horses exercising in part of the building next to the bull-ring. there were costumes and artefacts to do with bull-fighting, but it was wandering around the bull-ring that made it seem so impressive. There were sections marked for the vets, the medical people and just brought home to you how dangerous for people and animals this place was.

The oldest bullring is worth seeing ! I recommend to take the audio headphones from the info desk , they allow you to securely connected to the history whilst walking through the arena . Museum Apartments old fashioned accessories is exciting!

The Plaza de Toros is an impressive bull ring in Ronda. If you have seen a bull ring before then you could probably avoid visiting this. Otherwise this place is recommended. The place exudes a lot of history and one can only imagine the scenes played out in the ring when it was in use. There were no bull fights... More

Make sure on your visit you get the audioguide which gives a wealth of information about the history of the bullring. Very interesting place and one of main attractions in Ronda

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.
