Plaza de Toros de Ronda, Ronda
(4.2/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
In atmospheric Plaza de Toros de Ronda, 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.

  • It is different from the others. I liked its appearance, with the covered stands. I've done a mess with the numbering of the seats. The rest all fine

  • Perhaps the most ancient plaza de toros of Spain. A true work of art where you can visit all its corners and is in an excellent state of conservation. It is one of the monuments that if itself and for its history, gives this so romantic that it has round.

  • Ronda's bullring, in the Plaza de Toros, is the oldest in Spain. It is quite splendid. The neo-classical interior comprises two storeys with Tuscan columns. There is also a bull-fighting museum and, every September, the Goyesque bullfights take place in the bullring. The three-day feria y fiestas de Pedro Romero were inspired by the great friendship that existed between Francisco de Goya and Pedro Romero, the great bullfighter - if one can call someone who slaughtered over 6000 bulls great! Nonetheless, he is regarded as the father of modern bullfighting.
  • Love or loathe the idea of the Corrida this is the perfect place to visit. It will either leave you astounded or vindicated but either way will give you some perspective on why bull fighting existed and what it means to the culture of this part of Spain. Look out for the pupils of the resident horse riding school parade gracefully in the arena. The gift shop had some really nice things that you mostly won't find in the general tourist shops so this is worth a visit on its own.
  • Interesting history of the ring. These places are usually brought to life best with a local guide rather than an audio guide or just reading the boards yourself.
  • Plaza de toros mais antiga da Espanha.
  • The museon quite interesting but the plaza is the most.
