Overview

Beyond the Iberian peninsula most people are rather uncomfortable about bullfighting, which makes a visit to this venerable bullring with attached museums all the more fascinating – not least for those who would never consider attending a bullfight. An inspection of the ring, and the backstage facilities that sustain it (the Plaza, of necessity, has its own ER) is a good counterpoint to a browse around a museum which is full of artwork and costumes celebrating the skill of the matador together with the mounted heads of their animal nemeses. Go with an open mind and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of bullfighting’s place in the life and culture of Andalucía.

Visited here as part of a day trip on board a Celebrity Cruise around the Mediterranean. This place has such atmosphere. If you don't like bull fights, come to see the architecture. No lack of effort was spared in making this place a marvel.

The museum tour was worth the effort! Bullfighting is not for everyone, it is appreciated by those who truly understand the history and the event.

In spite of being against bullfighting, this place gives you an overview about this Spanish tradicional 'activity' (the visit includes a guide and the visit of many rooms and main places concerning bullfighting).

Even if you do not like the idea of bullfighting this is a very interesting visit. The guide was informative and you learn a lot about bullfighting. I still would not go to an actual fight but recommend this.

They are open for tours 9:30am to 7pm, they start a tour about every half hour. There was a wait when we went so we bought our tickets an hour ahead then went and got Gelato while we waited :)
