People of Spain were a little un-welcoming to tourists. The open and closing times are stated on the door for 7p.m, we got there at 6:30pm, and we were informed that they close at 6:30 and we can only go up to see the museum, what a waste for 2 euros, not worth the visit and the rude receptionist that...

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

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

we went as a small group to Madrid and a few wanted to go to the bullring . I object to the cruel sport of bull fighting but went along on basis that we were not actually witnessing a bull fight . 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
