I went to Las Ventas to see a bullfight. I thought it would be an interesting thing to do to partake in the Spanish culture. I must say, way sadder and more difficult to get through than I could have imagined. This isn't for the weak of heart - especially for animals. The ceremony and crowd of it was interesting... More

There is a show at 7 PM every day. So we missed it because we didn't know about it. However we had a fantastic tour of the entire place with our audio guide.

People of Spain were a little un-welcoming to tourists. While traveling in Spain one cannot help but see the lack of diversity of trees as Spain clears the land of natural trees for Olive trees. One would also see the resulting lack of insects and variety of birds given the country's interest in olive trees alone. Miles and miles of... More

The tour guide gave great explanations and perspectives. I highly recommend the tour before you attend the event.

Ignore previous posts, the Bullfighting Museum is free. This is located at the back of the bull ring (walk around the outside) once inside you learn about the past bull Fighters and what the wore. The bull ring it's self has a 14€ charge, with this, you get to visit the inside of the bulk ring

I enjoyed the tour , avoided the videos , and found the history aspect really interesting . All... More

Bullfighting has been a part of the Spanish culture for centuries! It was nice to see a bullfight and hear the natives chant during certain phases of this event. Didn't know that "the kill" would be so harsh. Overall I'm glad I got to experience this event! If you don't like to see blood etc then this may not be... More

Really worth a visit. To be honest i was less sure about the visit but hubby was keen. It was an absolute eye opener - not the cruel sport i had expected it to be and although i would still not like to attend a bull fight - learnt a lot
