  • Very impressive, we loved the history of the bull ring and the stories of the matadors. There is an interesting collection of painting and artifacts. I like the audio guide. It brings a sense of drama to what you are seeing. The only thing that could be better is the tour is too quick. You get pushed along. Personally I like to reflect a little bit on what I'm seeing and hearing. Still recommend though.
  • Place is well preserved. Apparently it is the biggest bull fighting arena in Spain still being used. The season last from April till October. Tickets for the “show” range from 30 to 130 euros, depending on the seat and the toreador (more famous means higher price). Tours are guided. One may learn a lot. But of course for animal loving people like us it was - mildly put - strange experience.
