We didn't do the little museum or a tour, we just walked in and looked around the plaza. We've visited other bull fighting rings before; this was just something to do for fun in the afternoon when we were visiting the city. There was no...More

I live next to it, and we see crowds going to see Bull fights, certainly a historic location and there is a few big bull bronze statues nearby to take a photo. But as a venue it's to my mind better to see a concert...More

I used to attend bull fights in this bull ring frequently when I lived in Spain. It is one of the older ones in the country and in my opinion, one of the nicer ones. If you don't care for bull fights the ring probably...More

I've got to start by saying that I'm no fan of bullfighting, I think it's cruel and barbaric. With that out of the way, I do like to visit the rings - they're a part of Spanish culture and the architecture in many of them...More

Enjoyed our private English guided tour. Our guide showed us the areas from the perspective of the bullfighter and then from the bulls. This arena was recently renovated so it was very attractive standing in the center of the bull ring. While I don't like...More
