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...more

The bullring in Seville is one of the oldest in the country and reflects it with a very business-like air. It has a museum attached to it which i didnt visit since I was more interested in the actual bullfight. The ring was raked sand...More

Admire the bullring from the outside, but don't bother paying the 5 euro it costs for the 20 minute tour. The tour was given by an extremely bored guide on autopilot, first in Spanish, then in heavily accented English. That makes the tour about 10...More

Otherwise, this is an interesting place to visit. You get to see the real bullring and interesting exhibits (the chapel is surreal). I hope they don't herd and rush people in groups like that. Let visitors walk by themselves at their own pace and people...More

We turned up without booking and luckily were at the right time for an English tour. You are supplied with audio phones, which normally we dislike, but worked well on this tour as you all went round in a large group with a guide to...More

We don't like the idea of a bullfight but were recommended a visit to the bull ring. It was a very interesting and in parts fascinating. Well worth a visit.

Although strongly disagreeing with the concept of bull fighting this is part of Spain's history and the Seville bullring is one of the top ones in Spain - if not the top one - and can seat 12,500 people. The entrance fee of 8 euros...More

Whatever your views on bullfighting are there's probably something here for everyone; art, architecture, history - everything to give you a greater understanding of the way of life and culture of the people of Seville which is inextricably linked with bullfighting. Well worth a visit...More

You are paying 8€ for basically nothing. I expected more. There is a guide, but beside the recorded audio, you are not getting some extra info. Then you are just seeing some paintings about the matadors and in the end you get 5 min in...More

Luckily we were able to get tickets to the last bull fight of the year which happened to also be a fund raiser. We saw 7 bull fighters and really enjoyed being part of such a special event for the locals.
