The bullring is still used for occassional fights otherwise it is open as a tourist attraction with a museum housed beneath the seating all the way around. It costs €7 to visit. If you have never seen a bullring then this one is worth the price of admission.

It was well worth our visit to see the oldest bull fighting ring in the world. Unfortunately they only do one bull fight a year here so we did not get to see one. The arena is used mostly for horse shows from what I could understand. The tours are self guided. There was an option for an audio guide... More

It used to be free to get into the bullring and the museum but they now charge 7 euros each! Shame really as it looked pretty amazing from the outside and much bigger than I imagined.

You can see where the picador train, where the excite the bull, you can walk inside the Arena and go on the terrace. It's easy to imagine how it is when there is a real event. There is also a small museum that show some costumes and bull heads. If you are against Corrida i would advice not to go.

Sometimes called the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda (Royal Equestrian Armoury of Ronda - when knights were mounted and chivalry was high on the agenda for the nobility), the bullring incorporates a training centre for the world-famous 'dancing horses' of Andalucía. The bullring itself is an impressive building and one of the oldest in Spain - possibly the second... More

Worth a visit to see the inside of the bull ring, some of the history and equestrian arena too. Could be more info on the bullfighters uniforms.

Located right in the middle of Ronda. Nice museum with lots of artifacts and older firearms that were used in the days. The audio guide is very helpful and informative. Well worth the stop.

Fascinating place, we took up the option of the audio tour and found that very helpful in walking through the mechanics and history of bullfighting in Andalusia. There is definitely a level of discretion applied with regard the fate of the bulls that means touring the facility is not as confronting as one may think. In September each year 3... More
