The architecture of this bullring is quite something. It’s the biggest one in Spain and beautifully designed and built but what it stands for makes me sad. So barbaric but a part of Spanish culture. The audio recording is really helpful and talks you through...More

Although controversial, bullfight is a Spanish tradition still valued as a true art mastered by 'toreros' throughout centuries. It all started at this place in late 1700. You can take a seat at the arena, visit the museum inside and learn about the legendary 'toreros'...More

The Plaza de Toros is full of history! Makes me think of Ferdinand the Bull:) The gift shop is wonderful because is carries quality items, not junky souvenirs!

If you stay in Ronda this will be a must to see. The Arena is nice with an interesting museum about the Toreros.

As far back as I can remember, Spain was always synonymous with bulls and matadors. Since my wife and I were in Ronda during the off-season, it would have been sacrilegious to go back without visiting the bull ring. The Plaza de Toros was round...More

We took a self-guided tour of the Plaza de Toros that was very interesting...lots of history and exhibits of matador costumes and some of the 'tools' of the trade.

I personally hate the fact that this is an arena for bull fighting but it is a good example of it they have a little museum inside, you can see where they keep the animals and so on. I enjoyed this place.
