  • Visit with translation, interesting without being extraordianire. If you want to see an arena, it is there.

  • Of passage we could note that these arenas have no interests from the outside, seen from the cathedral we can discover the grandeur and the beauty of the interior, but for this it is advisable to go there when he has bullfights to see what this place Represents in Andalusia.

  • Although not visited inside, the building on the outside is very interesting and well maintained. I'm not interested in knowing inside.

  • I am only giving this 2 Stars but just could’ve easily been a five-star experience. Tours are only given on audio device. They should’ve had a introductory video/movie on the life of a bullfighter and the bull. Having done this it would’ve helped you understand the audio tour guide in each room they took you to and the outside Colosseum where the bullfights take place. So much possibilities, everyone on the tour was disappointed.
  • Well maintained and guides are very knowledgeable. I liked the gallery's and customues and finally seeing the red mud bull fight ground with nice views with yellow and white colours Arches. If time permits a must visit for experience.
  • Having preconceived ideas regards bullfighting we didnt expect this tour to leave much impression. To stand in the centre of the bullring and imagining that bull charging towards you at great speed from a fairly short distance made me shudder for both man and beast. The guide was very well informed and the audio system gave further details. Good value
  • The tour was so-so, I liked the lady that talked but we were group of almost 35 people and it’s really needed to have some headphones and microphone for the talker if you withdraw 8 euros per person .. otherwise you miss most of what she’s saying cause she’s not waiting for anyone. And again...It’s insane and wild to make killing and torture of an animal just for a show. Must be mentally retarded people to enjoy it. Respect to Catalonia from me
  • We had a really interesting guided tour. Our tour guide was really nice and knew everyting about the culture and the story behind the bulls. She showed us the museum and of course the beautiful arena. Het English was also really good, so that was very nice!
