Beyond the Iberian peninsula most people are rather uncomfortable about bullfighting, which makes a visit to this venerable bullring with attached museums all the more fascinating – not least for those who would never consider attending a bullfight. An inspection of the ring, and the backstage facilities that sustain it (the Plaza, of necessity, has its own ER) is a good counterpoint to a browse around a museum which is full of artwork and costumes celebrating the skill of the matador together with the mounted heads of their animal nemeses. Go with an open mind and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of bullfighting’s place in the life and culture of Andalucía.

We went on the tour in February, the bull fighting is only on between April and November but I wouldn't want to see that anyway. The tour was very interesting the Spanish tour guide spoke very good English, was very friendly and answered any questions.

Not really a fan of the history behind bull rings or the cruelty that goes with them, but for those who want to know a little of the history behind the Toros and want that photo moment, its worth the visit.

The tour was lead by a guide, who, while pleasant had no joy of the material. She could have been reading from a card. Not a good value.

One of the only oval bull rings steeped in history some of which not for the squeamish but a part of Sevilles history that must be seen. Great building and if you got a sight seeing tour bus ticket you get a discount too. Tour is 30 minutes.

An interesting 30 minute tour of parts of the bullring and museum. Whether you agree or disagree with bullfighting it's interesting to have a look inside this amazing old building.

Even if you are not a fan of bull fighting- be aware you are not alone. Even several kings in Spain have tried to convert the Spaniards to less dramatic events in the ring. This said- what a wonderful experience to visit this great bull figthing ring and to see the costumes and learn the impressive history behind the sport.... More

We stumbled into this neighborhood on a rain January night. The little bars and places in front of the Plaza de Toros kept us dry and the good food, wine and music lifted our spirits

The entrance fee of €7 includes a tour of the bull ring and museum. It was an interesting tour and we learnt a lot about the history of bull fighting. I am very anti-bull fighting and so struggled a bit with some of the items in the museum, however, it was still interesting and worth a visit.
