  • Must see the inside of the arena and the Museum. The entry fee is 15 euro with the audioguide, which we have found very useful. Beautiful beautiful beautiful and quaint

  • TO DO! I do not regret to have cause my family until there we do tour with audio guide included in the entrance price: super!, a playful and detailed tour that learn you a lot about the rules of bullfighting, the conduct and what there is around, ca remains a cruel custom in my eyes but I would like to see a bullfight (without injury or killing) c is a very interesting place the bullfighting Museum is especially composed her costume and portrait of great bullfighter, a very nice visit

  • An interesting cross-cultural experience. It's not really gory, if you consider that the bull is going to end up as burgers and belts in the end. (The bull proves itself in the event to be an animal that relates to humans about the same as an alligator.) My impression was of throngs of people, sitting on concrete blocks, mostly jeering the Matadors, with a fanfare from a small brass ensemble to mark the passing from one phase of the fight to the next.
  • Very unique experience, but if you want to learn about local traditional activities this is the place. Impressive building, colorful parade, live music, but they are killing animals...in public. If you have a ticket, make sure to rent a pillow for sitting.
  • The best show of bullfighting is here. You cannot visit Spain and skip it. Some viewers may find the bullfighting disturbing. I am not a big fan but i quite like it, take into account that these bulls are raised for the show..
  • I enjoyed the Bull Fight a lot. It was fantastic! You better select the seat around 1,9 or 10 because it's close to see the fight.
  • It was terrible, 6 strong, beatiful bulls were killed for fun. People were shouting and enjoyed it, except us. Killing was unnecessary and for fun??? Building is fantastic but it should be used for something else, theatre or dance show or sport events. I would never go again for this event! Éva

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
