Owner description: 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 during festival and only got to the entrance of Plaza de Toros and I was turned away as i had a camera.
Tried to say I'll put it away but to no avail.

It's a great outing for a rainy day.
It lets you behind the scenes of a bullfight.
It's not just the bullring, it's a museum full of photo's, costumes, weapons and so on.
I can only visit museums for two hours tops. This one fits the bill.
Get the audio guide.
Oh, and if you love animals don't go see a real bullfight!

Every year, there is a Goyesque bullfight, and the tickets are sold from one year to the other. People from all spain go there to see this beautifull "show"
Ernest Heminway went there every year during his life and his ashes are in Ronda. For people who like
bullfights this is the Meca!

Wether you believe that bull fighting should be banned on not this place tells of Spanish Social History in a way that little else can. Its superbly kept, well documented and really like no where else I have been. The most recent events had been in September and it was rather disturbing to notice the sand in the bull ring was still stained red in places despite recently days of torrential rain. It set the hairs on the back of my neck on end, you can almost feel the excitement build at such an event if you close your eyes and take in the smells and noises of horses and people. Its a must if you visit Ronda - I loved it.

Worth visiting. Unlike the arena in Sevilla, in this one you are allowed to walk around everywhere at your own pace. We spent a lot of time here, walking around out/inside in the sun as well as visiting the museum.
