We went here on a rainy day in the Costa Del Sol and the weather was completely different to the coast.
We found it really interesting and it kept two young boys engaged for a couple of hours.
Quite amazing to stand in a centuries...More
I don't really like the idea of bullfighting, but the ring is pretty dramatic. You can walk all around it, as well as enter the ring itself. There is a museum you can see if interested and there are some pretty artistic posters from previous...More
This was our first visit to a Bull Ring and although we did not see a Bull Fight, it was an enjoyable 1-2 hours learning the history of the Bull Ring and the Bull Fight! It cost 8-50euros for admission and audio and strongly suggest...More
Went through fairly quickly as part of our Ronda tour. We did get a bit of information from the guide. We had done our research before arriving, and were thrilled to see it for ourselves. The walk through museum was very interesting, with all the...More
While we didn't go into the Plaza de Toros, we really didn't have the time, we noted what our guide had to say about the history of bull fighting in Ronda and the links to Ernest Hemmingway and Orson Wells. I took some photos of...More
I'm not into bullfighting, but I always wanted to see a bullring. Of course, there's much more to it than the arena. The tour costs something like 8 euros and includes an audio device. I got to see different stages of the operation, like the...More
Interesting to visit behind the scenes of a bullring and to see where the bulls are kept beforehand, and also where the horses are trained. A huge bullring in a great setting. I would never attend a bullfight but enjoyed looking around and seeing old...More

No. The bullring in Ronda is the most important Plaza de Toros in Spain and is only used for bullfights one weekend per year, during the town's annual fiesta. The Goyesca Corrida(bullfight) is held on the Saturday (the penultimate day) if Ronda's fiesta. The fiesta takes place in the first week of September, normally. I think the Goyesca Saturday this year is on the 9th of September. The Goyesca attracts the world's best toreros.
On the Friday, a bullfight featuring young toreros (bullfighters) is held. These toreros are normally in their late teens, early 20's and are just a year or so shy of being qualified, having started training for the corrida at the age of 8 or 9.
