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

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

When went there and right outside there are a few sculputures that are nice to take pics of but i wanted to see inside. Well we walked up and the lady said its... More

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

First and foremost, I am no advocate of bullfighting. I find it cruel, sad and very depressing. I was however, intrigued by why people would do such a thing and decided to visit the museum myself. I was of course, unwilling to pay to watch the match but I did pay for an audio guide that took me through the... More

The architecture of the building itself is nice but as far as the bullfight, unless you are into the whole animal cruelty watch-an-innocent-animal-get-stabbed-to-death-repeatedly sort of thing do NOT go. I'm surprised this sort of cruelty has not been banned yet. Summed up in one word, traumatizing.
