Founded by the local nobility at the end of the 16th century,the Real Maestranza maintains a horse-riding school and is also the builder of an impressive bullring, in the centre of the romantic town of Ronda, near Malaga and the Costa del Sol. In modern times, the principal activities are devoted to the conservation of its unique historical and artistic heritage. It has gained a deserved reputation for the recovery of archives,works of art, libraries and original documents relating to its history. The bullring is open to the general public all year round and the visit includes the Bullfighting Museum, the Royal Harness Collection and the Antique Firearms Collection.Corporacion nobiliaria cuyos origenes se remontan a 1572, la Real Maestranza mantiene en la actualidad un patrimonio historico y artistico unico en Espana por su singularidad y caracter, relacionado con el mundo de la caballeria, la equitacion y la tauromaquia. Bajo los tendidos de su monumental Plaza de Toros, que data de finales del siglo XVIII, se encuentran la Sala de Tauromaquia y las colecciones de Guarnicioneria y Armas de Fuego Antiguas, en su conjunto un importante reclamo turisticos en el casco historico de la romantica ciudad de Ronda, a escasa distancia de Malaga y la Costa del Sol, y accesible todos los dias del ano en horario ininterrumpido.

Visited Ronda several times now. The Plaza de Toros and its maestranza is really nice to visit. There are guided tours possible.

Not a fan of bullfighting but respect the history so had a look at this place as it is a very old bullring perched near the cliffs overlooking the Ronda valley (not the one in Wales). Interesting and good that you can walk across the ring itself. Probably best to avoid the bit out the back where you can see... More

Very old and traditional plaza de toros. There is also a museum and shop with great paintings and graphics. If you like great souvenirs you have to go there. You can visit the plaza inside. Great impressions.

We, unwittingly, arrived in Ronda right in the midst of their annual festival; the highlight of which is the Tradicional Corrida Goyesca. We found we were able to get good tickets at very short notice and keen to try to appreciate the culture went to our first bullfight. The arena was thronged with people and bands playing from the gallery... More

We stayed in Ronda one day and this was the top of our list of things to see. There is a self guided tour with audio support avaliable. This is the largest and oldest active bull ring in Spain. The museum and walking path through the facility fills in a lot missing information about bull fighting, it's start as a... More

Even though I'd never watch a bullfight, I go to Europe to soak in the culture and history. This place is full of both. Stand in the middle of the arena and take a 360 picture (panorama on your smartphone). The museum is interesting, but walking around and taking pictures was a better experience for me.

Slighly eery as you can see where the bulls have tried to get out of their boxes before they go in but everything else was great. We saw the horses in the inside school and the ring itself is a real sight. We walked around when there wasn't a fight on.

Nice museum. You also saw the bullfighting arena and a Spanish riding school demonstration. They also had a nice gift shop.
