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.

The bullring was very cool to see but the tour could be improved. You receive an audio guide and can select your language but a person leads you around with a group so you are limited time wise to the "tour". The person doesn't not...More

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours. Very informative and interesting. Tour is in several languages by headphones so you don't have to listen to someone saying the same thing over again in each language. Very authentic.

Offers good insight and a visually arresting look at bullfighting. Seville is definitely at the core of the bullfighting culture and experience so if you have an interest, this is the best place to go. Excellent audio tour with accompanying guide (required) is helpful. If...More

Even if you do not approve of bullfighting, the tour of the Plaza de Toros and its museum gives a good view of bullfighting's long history in Spain and of the ceremonies and ritual in the corrida.

The guide was a little weary, and the commentary is rather bland, but there is no denying the splendour and history of this place.

It appears that presently, the famous regional horse show comes to Seville each week to the Plaza de Toros for one evening. The "Como Ballan los Caballos Andalucea" is a spectacle of majestic and beautifully trained horses and their costumed riders and handlers. The stadium...More

To bad we are in Seville when bull fight season is over, but we had opportunity to get a tour of the Plaza de Toros. Very informative and very nice to see and hear about the history of the sport. We really enjoyed !

But its interesting and eerie all at once. Especially when you step onto the ting itself. Learnt a smattering of the different eras of bullfighting and all about the pre ring ceremony -rituals.

an average visit, spoiled by the guide who offered nothing of value and clearly hated the job. Nonetheless, it was good to be able to see around inside, albeit a fairly limited visit

Set in large gardens, this tiled gem is impressive in size and beauty. You can climb up to the 1st floor for nice views of fountain and gardens. A must see in Seville.

We just did it on the day. I don't know if there is an advanced or online option but we didn't wait more than 20 min for a tour. We waited for an English speaking tour. The English was excellent. If you look in advance you... More

They are open for tours 9:30am to 7pm, they start a tour about every half hour. There was a wait when we went so we bought our tickets an hour ahead then went and got Gelato while we waited :)
