In atmospheric Plaza de Toros, it's easy to imagine a raucous crowd letting out a collective "Olé!" as a costumed bullfighter deftly averts a steaming-mad bull. At one time, this was one of Spain's most important bullrings. It features 136 pillars and 68 arches lining 2 rows of seating and a stone passageway leading to the large dirt circle in the middle. Its rural location means bullfights take place infrequently these days, but tours of the arena and bullpens remain on offer. Check out the small chapel where bullfighters pray before taking to the ring. To see collections of royal harnesses and antique firearms, head into the museum.

  • Plaza de Toros, the oldest all-stone bullring in Spain. We had zero interest in attending a bull fight, but the history of the sport and how it relates to the Spanish culture was very interesting.  more »
  • In Ronda la Plaza de Toro, Spain's oldest combat arena and among the largest in the world, worth a visit, always with due respect for the traditions and rituals of bullfighting which exudes the true soul and the very essence of the Spanish people. Well cared for, beautiful colonnades with columns and arches of the two layers, white and ochre, bronze sculptures of famous Bullfighter Cayetano Ordonez, and bull. Impressive!
