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 got introduced to the bull fighting history and culture while visiting the museum. When we were allowed to walk out to the bullring, the wow feeling is like imagining people cheering you on for good luck.

The ritual, the style, the tension, the live band, the outfits--just a thrill. But you have to be ok watching bulls "lose" (and be dragged away ceremoniously, it's part of the tradition). The first bullring ever. Definitely do the tour of the museum where it's...More

This was our last morning in Seville and a reasonably short walk made this ideal. We did the self help walk around, rather than go with a guided group. It is easy to get around and plenty of explanation. You can choose to sit in...More

Bullfights in Spain generally only take place on Sunday afternoons, and in May when we went they were not even holding regular bullfights, just lower-key events for new aspirants. But the Plaza de Toros is open most days for tours, so we decided to go...More

They are open for tours 9:30am to 7pm, they start a tour about every half hour. There was a wait when we went so we bought our tickets an hour ahead then went and got Gelato while we waited :)
