It is the oldest bull ring in Spain. The tour is not guided but the place is quit easy to follow specially with the provided map. You can take photos and learn about the history of the bull fighting.

I don't agree with bullfighting, and so I wouldn't go to see that here, however, the building is impressive and the space is beautiful; you will discover that more than just bullfighting occurs here. I would love to come and see the horses parading or any of the other festivals.

The Plaza de Toros is a must visit in Ronda. Beyond the arena itself, there is also an interesting museum. Representations are not taking place there in August.

This was great value for money and very interesting to look around and take in the history. Ronda is a lovely place to visit with a lot to do amd the views are amazing especially in the old parts

We chose to do the auto guided tour, well worth the money. We spent 2 full hours looking around and visiting the museum. My only comment would be they need to add number point to make the audio tour easier to follow. Highly recommend though

I do not particularly endorse bull fighting, but it is an interesting exhibition that explains quite well how the sport evolved. To someone who knows next to nothing about bull fighting that was quite fascinating. There are also other exhibits. The room explaining the rules and role of duel in Spanish society was interesting, I think.

My sister and i were undecided about visiting the bullring but for €7 it was definitely worth the visit. The arena itself is enormous and you can really imagine the bullfights which took place thre. The museum and weighted gates are also very different from anything we'd seen before.

We stopped in Ronda for a half a day on the way to Granada. The city is very picturesque and I don't regret the stop at all. Plaza de Toros was interesting if only because of its history and the fact that I had never been to a bullfighting ring before.

Get a great sense of history when standing in the middle of the bullring and interesting and not too gruesome museum.

The arena was great and the bull pens were interesting. They were small! The queues were short. The only negative thing that i could say is that kids above 12 years are not cheaper. I recommend this attraction.
