I visited this place as part of a bike tour with Bogotravel Tours. Our guide was fernando and he explained the culture and history of bullfighting in Colombia, particularely in this place. It was very interesting and despite of the fact that bullfighting is a very controversial subject, he gave us great insight into the debate and told us how... More

I went prepared to be repulsed and appalled as part of my education in making an informed decision. I came away a firm convert to a spectacular tradition carried out in stunning location. Before you go understand what bullfighting is and go with someone knowledgeable if you can. Read death in the afternoon by Hemingway before you go as a... More

It seems to me as a Bullfighting Colombian Aficionado that what you had here was a bad experience. With one bad experience it is impossible for you to tell with objective criteria which is the level of bullfighting in Colombia, specifically in Bogota. Obviously Ramses and the other Spanish bullfighter have a poor level. This is done on purpose for... More

Didn't get in there because it's closed by the mayor that is against the drove of bulls. I agree but it's still a very beautiful place that has to be used somehow. At least go for a pic outside!

If you, like us, are aficionados of los torros based on your experienc Spain. Or If you've never been and this is your first opportunity. In either case save your time and your money for your next visit to Madrid or Sevilla. What you will see here is is almost a parody of Spanish corrida. It seems that almost half... More

There it's possible to assist many events, apart from bulls' "corridas" and other "toreros" public activities. It is home of international artists like singers and dancers besides the best theater festival in the world.

This bullfighting ring is home of many spectacles, shows, concerts, and of course bull fighting. If you like this spanish tradition, you have to come during the special season that begins in july and ends in august.

We visited the Bullfight Stadium on our bicycle tour. The building is beautiful - it seems to have Arabesque influences. And bullfighting must be popular here, since the apartment towers behind the stadium are designed to allow residents to watch the bullfights. Sure, bullfighting takes a lot of courage, and is dramatic. But that doesn't make getting stabbed to death... More
