  • I've never seen a bull fight arena in my life, so it was definitely a "once in a lifetime" experience. You would only need 45-50 minutes to see it all. A kid-friendly place although I had a really tough time explaining my third grader why on earth humans would fight bulls and reasons it is considered "entertainment" even in modern day and age.
  • Even if you’re not into bullfighting, it’s good to see the history and tradition of it. It’s cheap to enter and you go at your own pace. Good spot to stop prior to going into Triana.
