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

I have never been to a bull fight and have no intention of doing so but was interested to see inside. Much larger than I thought it would be and lots of history about the fights. Entrance fee €7.50

I wanted to see the bullring but 7.50 euros per person a little steep. We did pay and took pictures and got the experience.

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

Nice to see the Bull Ring in the middle of Ronda and also the history of the place as well. I really enjoyed it.

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... More
