“Old Bull Ring Now Falling Down”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

The locals are proud of this place, but we've seen many bull rings, and this one, while it may have been impressive, is nothing much now. It's falling down, and not worth more than a moment or two.

“Interesting story”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

The place has an interesting story. It was built in the 19th century by an entrepreneur who had plans to build a three story hotel connected to the ring. However bull fighting was banned soon after construction completed. The ring was thus never used and the project abandoned. More recently the structure is in need of repair and entry to the interior of the building is forbidden.

There is an interesting train museum along side the bull ring... also worth a visit, and a few second hand street vendours selling old irons, plates etc.

“Interesting to see”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

If you have one of the rental carts, drive out to see the bull ring. But it is not open inside so you just drive around and take a few photos and drive on to the next spot.

“Needs urgent upkeep”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

They've been talking about restoring the Plaza ever since I remember. Every now and then more pieces fall off. Soon there will be nothing there but rubble.

It was a nice Plaza but needs to be recovered because this place is full of history
