Did a quick tour of the bull ring which is still active certain months of the year. I stood in the dead center of the ring and just spun in a circle amazed at how big and intimidating it must feel to be a bull...More

Personally I'm not a fan for bull fighting, but this museum is really informative, there is some beautiful art on display and the arena? Itself is breathtaking, you feel so small. This museum has an audio tour which is 100% worth using. The tour is...More

This bullring is prettier and more Spanish than the Plaza de Toros in Madrid. Loved the tour; the feel of the whole bullring is quite authentic. Lovely colours and very typical of Sevilla. Very well located too..easy access!

My husband, a Spanish teacher, and I have never seen a live bullfight. In the interest of field investigation we decided to attend. Granted, the architecture, the live music, the pomp and circumstance, the formality of the patrons, and the pageantry of the fight are...More

Visiting a bullfighting ring would never have occurred to us before, but we passed it a few times and decided to buy tickets for an early evening tour. It was a fascinating introduction, apparently a strange mix of circus, sport and exciting daring glamour. I...More

You can enter for free on Mondays but you have to stay 30 minutes in line with very hot sun and they don’t really care. I think I should expect that from a bull’s ring. Suffering is part of the tour... Terrible

We did both the tour and went to the bullfight. I wish we had done the tour before the bullfight as we would have appreciated more the traditions but both were great!

A tour of the Seville bull ring brings some insight into the bull fighting history and culture of Seville and Spain generally. There are audio guides in many languages that provide insight into the specific rooms, the history of the sport and the ring, and...More

I think the money u spend at the museum goes to the museum but honestly I’m far from a hundred percent on that. I would think you could contact the museum directly or the tourist board who could confirm this a 100% I’m... More

Hello! I'm Afraid you are mistaking the Spanish arena, without any "tent" ( so, in summer you have to know if you will buy your ticket "ombra" or "sole", shade or sun - the first one being more expensive), and the roman... More

As already mentioned it takes about an hour but well worth the visit. We just turned up on the day and had to wait about 20 mins for the next tour but it wasn't a problem.
