Plaza de Toros, Colonia del Sacramento

(1.1/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Admire Plaza de Toros from the outside and imagine what the bullring must have looked like in its heyday. Once used for the controversial sport of bullfighting, the building's crumbled remains reflect sadly on the fate that has befallen it. The stadium was only used for two years, between 1910 and 1912, then left to decay for more than a century. You can't enter the bullring, so it's only worth visiting if you are a fan of abandoned structures and have time to make the hour-long walk from the city center. Take a look at our Colonia del Sacramento itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Plaza de Toros and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Beautiful building, however there is no any service or activity on the site. Is closed by danger of collapse.

  • Well.. It is a real shame. Why not have maintained it as expected, being a jewel in our country. It falls to pieces... his State is fenced... so it not could be inside. A real shame, that being a city tourist, not are suits your State for this. Unfortunate
