Good to know information

There is a show at 7 PM every day. So we missed it because we didn't know about it. However we had a fantastic tour of the entire place with our audio guide.

People of Spain were a little un-welcoming to tourists. While traveling in Spain one cannot help but see the lack of diversity of trees as Spain clears the land of natural trees for Olive trees. One would also see the resulting lack of insects and variety of birds given the country's interest in olive trees alone. Miles and miles of... More

The tour guide gave great explanations and perspectives. I highly recommend the tour before you attend the event.

Ignore previous posts, the Bullfighting Museum is free. This is located at the back of the bull ring (walk around the outside) once inside you learn about the past bull Fighters and what the wore. The bull ring it's self has a 14€ charge, with this, you get to visit the inside of the bulk ring

we went as a small group to Madrid and a few wanted to go to the bullring . I object to the cruel sport of bull fighting but went along on basis that we were not actually witnessing a bull fight . I enjoyed the tour , avoided the videos , and found the history aspect really interesting . All... More

Bullfighting has been a part of the Spanish culture for centuries! It was nice to see a bullfight and hear the natives chant during certain phases of this event. Didn't know that "the kill" would be so harsh. Overall I'm glad I got to experience this event! If you don't like to see blood etc then this may not be... More

Really worth a visit. To be honest i was less sure about the visit but hubby was keen. It was an absolute eye opener - not the cruel sport i had expected it to be and although i would still not like to attend a bull fight - learnt a lot

This was the most disappointing tourist attraction we visited during a two week visit to Spain. All it is is that they let you walk through the very unimpressive bull fighting stadium and charge you through the nose to do it. There are a couple of very unrealistic looking plastic bulls which they have around the stadium and when you... More

I had no idea that bullfighting had such a history or what it even involved before the tour, it is set out so you can go at your own pace, very informative 12 stations to listen to in total and lots of chances to take pictures! Would recommend it to anyone going whether you agree with it or not at... More
