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.

We really enjoyed the tour of Plaza de Toros. I think any visit to Seville should include a tour here to learn and appreciate the long history of bullfighting. I disagree with a previous reviewer who said it should be “on the bottom of the...More

Disappointing. 8euro to get in. Comes with an audio tour. Your not missing much if you don't have time to visit. Put at the bottom of your list.

I don't agree with bull fighting. However to visit this historic monument was worthwhile. You visit various rooms with paintings, costumes, small chapel etc with any audio guide. You then go out into the actual bullring.

This time I didn't do the tour, but it is inexpensive and worthwhile. A legendary building with incredible architecture the colors draw you in and you can almost hear and smell the bulls. Yes, it's a controversial sport but it is steeped in history. This...More

Seville's bullring is almost legendary. Even for those not interested in the controversial sports, the venue itself is worth a visit. The Andalusian architectural style is very impressive.

Interesting history of bull fighting. Get to see interior of the facility where the bulls were kept and the matadors prepared. Wonderful collection of paintings of bull fighters. Beautiful costumes matadors wore on display. Chance to stand in the bull ring. Guided tour with headset.

Pros: 1) Regardless of your opinion of bullfights in general, this bullfighting ring has a lot of history and you should see at least one ring while visiting Spain. Cons: 1) This ring was a bit disappointing as you're not allowed to go onto the...More

As already mentioned it takes about an hour but well worth the visit. We just turned up on the day and had to wait about 20 mins for the next tour but it wasn't a problem.
