Plaza de Toros, Colonia del Sacramento

(2.5/5 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.

  • The truth is that this place does not say anything since you can not enter it is a roundabout in a remote place and only an old building looks. So you have time to do that. otherwise not worth

  • Architecture really fascinating, but let that be not visible regret any form of appreciation of space (is closed, so only external views available). I believe that an investment in place recovery and future visits with local stories internal enalteceriam properly the attraction. Under the circumstances, only did the back in place of car, so requires a few minutes inside the script.

  • Cool thing to do: If you stand exactly in the center of arena and shout something, your voice will get amplified by the echo from surrounding walls. It is a pity that this cool attraction is closed.
  • Just to imagine the drama that went on here is spectacular. It's falling apart but that makes it a great picture and piece of history to see.
  • Ruins of a bull fighting stadium. It is forbidden to enter, even though tourist venture in. Nothing special, just a photo op if you get there by bike of golf cart from the town center.

  • A place classic Cologne that you can admire from the outside. Closed for security reasons (there is a risk of derumbe) for those who think pass safety fence, I warn them that there are police hanging around the area. If you got no car, there is a Bus that leaves you there by 21 Oops.
