Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, Madrid

4.1
Witness the traditional sport of bullfighting at Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. This architecturally stunning 25,000-capacity arena is considered the home of bullfighting in Spain. Fights can be very gory and are not for the faint-hearted. If you would like to see the building, but want to skip the bullfight, take a guided tour or audio tour. Tours visit the key parts of the stadium, including the bullring, the stands, and the bull gates. You’ll learn the history and rules of Spanish bullfighting. Spend some time on the terrace to appreciate the arena’s neo-Mudéjar architecture. Plan trip to Madrid with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • We walk through the plaza de toros, with the entrance give you an audio guide. The price was €12.90 per adult. My child don't pay entrance. The audio guide is worth the journey proposed by and listen carefully.

  • The plaza de toros sd looks on the outside only, except that at the box office pay the trip saying that it includes admission to the bullfighting Museum, which is free. The issue of exclusion is that they charge you only to enter the Plaza, which must be incredible, but not made, since we felt rare Museum not copper input minimal and it include visit to the square on the inside. The Museum taurine is cute, interesting to learn more about that culture.

  • Very interesting historic place, although nowadays bull fighting has a bad reputation worldwide. Times are changing and making animals suffer is no longer acceptable. But it is part of history and human evolution and therefore worth visiting. The building itself has an incredible middle eastern architecture and is stunningly beautiful.
  • A spectacle of tradition beautifying a brutal sport. Both beautiful and disturbing. But a must see at least once in a visit to Madrid.
  • A great place to visit if stopping in Madrid. It is one of the great bull rings on Spain. Great to go see a bull ring when it is in season but one can tour it all year long. If you go for a bull fight, they allow you to bring food and drinks. Recommend getting seats in the shade. If sitting in non shade, bring some sun protection
  • A great arena - but I must firstly warn it may slightly feel strange as they put and end to the bulls - but if you are okay with this then this will be the most organized way it could be done.
  • Madrid's famous bullfighting arena. A magnificent building in an imitation Moorish style, with red-brick masonry, impressive mosaics, arches and galleries. Two-tier spectators seating in the arena.
