The acoustics of the arena is just fantastic and a visit to its museum is a must for the ones that are not acquainted with the bullfight world

The Plaza de Toros is a really beautiful building complex. The presentation of the sport, setup, building and equipment is excellent. To sit down on the top row and look down on the fighting arena might give you a little chill. A part of the presentation is also a small arms museum which is quite interesting. We did go here...

We visited and got a good feeling about being in the arena. There is a small museum and a very nice gift shop. It is not expensive and Ronda being the original home of bullfighting, it is well worth the visit.

Interesting thing to do whilst in Ronda- 'one of' the oldest bullrings in spain. Good audio guide. Inexpensive and easy to walk to from town

A very good visit and I agree that the audio tour is worth the extra euros. It was a very hot day but we thoroughly enjoyed it, although disappointed with the small cafe. No prices or menus displayed and the seating area would not suit everyone....very high tables and stools!

We did not get the audio tour, but it was enjoyable to walk around and see the grounds. I would think the audio tour would make the visit a bit more interesting. If you are in Ronda, it's worth a visit.

Visited the bullring while in Ronda. Strongly suggest getting the audio tour for this visit. It is very instructive and made the visit so much more interesting. Well worth the extra 2 Euros.

We spent a very interesting 90 minutes at the bull ring which is well laid out and the audio tour ( whilst a bit too long) was really helpful. Definately worth a visit

We really enjoyed our visit to the Plaza de Toros. The ring itself was extremely well maintained and it was an experience to look around. There is also a museum which is particularly interesting and our leisurely stroll around took a lot longer than expected! Well worth the small entry fee.
