“ABANDONED!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Why are the city officials of Colonia del Sacramento have let this building fell apart over the years? The Plaza de Toros should be sold to foreign private investors with the condition to preserve the outside walls and converted into a shopping center with an attractive food court.

“What could have been”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

I was actually fascinated by this area, luckily we had a guide who provided us with the history of the 3 main buildings (Bullring, Casino and Jai Alai Centre) as part of a visionary touristic venture in the early 1900's. Bull fighting was actually banned in 1912 and there were only 8 meetings. Unfortunately all the buildings are in poor shape and entry is not allowed, although it is said that they are looking to renovate them as part of the history.

It is like a little coliseum so it is worth it to go see it!
there is nothing around but it is a really nice old construction to take pictures!

“Avoid the bus tour!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Plaza de Toro is the highlight of the very average one hour tour bus ride. On the plus side the bus is clean, modern and air conditioned but the English commentary is poor and consists mainly of drab music. It could be so much better and for US$25 per head you would be better saving your money.

“Deploited”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

The whole area seems to be quite run down and depressing. It used to be part of a daring touristic investment, but several government rules led the place to failure. Go only if you have plenty of time.
