  • Place is well preserved. Apparently it is the biggest bull fighting arena in Spain still being used. The season last from April till October. Tickets for the “show” range from 30 to 130 euros, depending on the seat and the toreador (more famous means higher price). Tours are guided. One may learn a lot. But of course for animal loving people like us it was - mildly put - strange experience.
  • Really cool experience to be able to walk through the entire area and then sit in the seating area. First time experiencing this and really enjoyed it. It was 10 euro a person to spend as much time as you wanted walking through. A lot of history in the museum areas in side and I am really happy we checked it out.
  • One the best highlights of my entire trip to Spain. The tour offers a lot of history about the bullfighting. They have old event posters and costumes from the matadors. You get to take a full tour of the arena including the event ring. Wonderful experience!
  • Great experience walking into the bullring. It wasn't crowded at all and you can do it at your own pace. There is a qr code that links you to the audioguide. Definitely recommended if you have some time in Seville.
  • Impressive bull ring and arena. I was surprised to find out that bulls are still killed for fun and actually it was in the full season for bull fighting shows. The museum it was basic but interesting. It costs €10 to get in and 30-40 min are more than enough to see everything
