Create an itinerary including Plaza de Toros de Ronda
In atmospheric Plaza de Toros de Ronda, it's easy to imagine a raucous crowd letting out a collective "Olé!" as a costumed bullfighter deftly averts a steaming-mad bull. At one time, this was one of Spain's most important bullrings. It features 136 pillars and 68 arches lining 2 rows of seating and a stone passageway leading to the large dirt circle in the middle. Its rural location means bullfights take place infrequently these days, but tours of the arena and bullpens remain on offer. Check out the small chapel where bullfighters pray before taking to the ring. To see collections of royal harnesses and antique firearms, head into the museum.

  • I am not a fan of bullfighting. It’s a cruel activity which is kept based on‘tradition’. Having said that, I still recommend a visit to the arena because it is one of the oldest ones in Spain...

  • Obviously, a bullring is not a museum, - there is one within its confines- but visitors can walk about it as if it were. Here the most beautiful and glorious pages of the world of bullfighting have been written. Opened to the public in 1785, it is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Spain. Truly worthy of a visit, even for those who are not lovers of the ring.
  • Excellent museum. Interesting and specific history about bullfighting and equestrianism. The bullring is magnificient and the educational videos are very well done. It does glorify bullfighting and does not point out the obvious issues around it, hence the 4 star.
