CAMPO PEQUENO'S BULLRING Campo Pequeno's Bullring is one of the most iconic...

CAMPO PEQUENO'S BULLRING Campo Pequeno's Bullring is one of the most iconic monuments of the city of Lisbon and of Portugal. Considered one the most important buildings of Neo-Arabic style in the country, it was designed by Architect José Dias da Silva and ranks among the most beautiful bullrings in the world, having opened its doors on the 18th of August 1892. The monument is property of the Casa Pia de Lisboa and is classified as a building of Public Interest. The history of Campo Pequeno's Bullring crosses paths with the history of Tauromachy. Campo Pequeno's arena has received and still does the majority of world class figures in the history of bullfighting, on a course with more than 120 years of existence. Its historical significance transcends its tauromachy related activities. It was here that several important episodes of the political and social life of Lisbon and of Portugal took place. The building underwent deep restoration works, between 2000 and 2006, under the responsibility of Architect José Bruschy, becoming a major and modern multi-purpose space, able to accommodate, besides bullfights, a vast array of other events. It was also complemented with a commercial galleria, cinemas, restaurants and parking area. Schedule: Shopping Centre: every day from 10am to 11pm. Closed on Christmas day and on New Year. Food & Beverages (Exterior): From 10am to 2pm (closing time may vary according to the restaurant) Cinemas: Monday to Friday, opening at 12pm. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, opening at 11am. Closing after last session. This schedule may be changed according to festive seasons. Parking Area: open 24H VISITS Visit Campo Pequeno's Arena and Museum and get to know an icon of Lisbon. Timetable: Every day from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 7pm. From November to March visits end at 6pm. In bullfighting days visits of the Arena end at 4pm and visits of the Museum at 8pm. Closed during special event days.

I bought tickets for a Brazillian singer named Djavan. There were not the best tickets available and then I accepted to buy for the 2nd best places. Man, the chairs were like hell. Seated, I had to put my knees on someone's else back and the lady seated behind me did the same to me. But, nothing that was our... More

On a whim, I went to the gala finale of the Lisbon bullfighting season by myself. The building is fantastic. Got tickets at the box office downstairs that night and got a great seat for 20€. There are no bad seats here, as sightlines go. Definitely look up Portuguese bullfighting customs before you go if you aren't familiar with them.... More

Was 39c when we hit the shopping centre to go to the movies for a bit of aircon in the heat of the day. They have 8 or 9 theatres and the air con works well. Shopping is a bit ordinary though. The food court in the basement was good for a quick cheap lunch and seeing the bullring was... More

This is a must must-see if you come to Lisbon. It gives you an opportunity to see the traditional bullfighting but must have enough stomach as you will see the bull(s) bleed. They generally perform on Thursday but not every week. I suggest you call in advance. There is a lot of smoking so if there is anyone who has... More

Lots of historical information in a small little Museum. Comes free with the ticket to bull fight. Or else visit to museum only also available for very minimal fee. Worth a visit if u happen to be in the area with 20 min of extra time in your hand.

Even though I would not wish to see a bull fight, I was quite interested to know more about this aspect of Portuguese and Spanish culture. As our hotel was just across the road and the bus stop was nearby we went in for a look. Firstly there is a major shopping plaza and metro station beneath the arena. You... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the small museum and excellent guide at this bull fighting venue. The place is beautifully restored and worth a quick visit.

Beautiful evening with the roof open so whilst we had the good fortune to see Diana Krall live we had the added bonus of being able to see the starry night sky

The bullfights are on Thursday night and can definitely depend on the bull. To night it started 45 minutes late do to Portugal playing Poland. Generally starts at 10pm. We left at the break in the middle midnight as we wanted to catch the metro before 1am shut down and the cigarette smoke was to much for my wife's asthma.... More
