  • I don't like to attend bullfights, so visiting this building in Seville was worth the trip. Very interesting area and they allow you to go through the whole area and even enter the ring.

  • Hadn’t made up our minds to visit but passed the building on our walk along the river to Triana so thought we’d take a look. Interesting audio guide to download on your phone with lots of background.....  more

  • 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.
  • A ‘must visit’ whilst in Seville even if no interest or abhorrent to bull fighting as it is part of Spanish history. The oldest bullring in Spain 🇪🇸, a magical structure. Goya paintings on display (lost his close friend in a bull fight) . Very interesting.
