Owner description: Spain's largest bullfighting ring.
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Went here to watch the bullfight which only takes place on Sundays. If you are planning to watch a bullfight, you have the option to be seated at sol (sun), sombre (shade), or sol y sombre (sun & shade). Ticket prices at the sol area are the cheapest while sombre prices are the most expensive. Our ticket was priced at about 20 euros per person since we were seated at the middle between the ring and the seats at the very back. I hope there was a guide (in English) for tourists when buying tickets/choosing seats then I believe we wouldn't have to pay 20 euros, but cheaper if we only knew beforehand on how to buy tickets. So, my tip is to read in advance before buying tickets in the stadium. There are stalls selling food and drinks outside the stadium since buying inside would be more expensive. You can rent seat cushions and the restrooms are clean. The nearest metro is Las Ventas which is just in front of the stadium which makes it accessible.

We went to Las VENTAS to see a bullfight with a group of 20 Americans. We bought the cheapest seats, which for me is bad because I am terrified of heights! The MUDEJAR style architecture is gorgeous!

It seems like you have to pay 10 Euros to see everything in Madrid. The entertainment value of the site is not worth 10 Euros. The architecture is amazing but you can see this from outside for free! Average is a great way to describe this site. Take the metro to Ventas to get there.Enjoy

The audio-guide tour provided a good understanding of the place of bull-fighting in Spain; I would not have expected to learn so much in one short visit.
The structure itself and surrounding sculptures conveyed a sense of the cultural significance of this activity.

It's very interesting! The architecture is impressive! But if you're against bullfighting it may cause negative emotions
