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.

An interesting insight into bullfighting in Spain and the museums are well maintained. It's interesting to see how the bulls are managed during the fight.

It is interesting to see the first bullring and look through the museum as well. Not a lot to do but still worth it while in Ronda.

6 euros to get in but gives you all the history you want to know about bullfighting. Being renovated while we were there but this doesn't stop you getting a feel for the place.

I loved the first plaza de toros in Ronda, its tremendous views and exhibits.
They have great souvenirs, too. You will learn a lot about the Orleans house.
