Plaza de Toros, Colonia del Sacramento

2.5
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Colonia del Sacramento
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. Make Plaza de Toros a centerpiece of your Colonia del Sacramento vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Colonia del Sacramento online visit planner .

  • The site is interesting but is always closed with the excuse of Restoration with the word local authorities

  • This is a pretty old site and not that well maintained. Its pretty far away from the port and old town and hence can skip this unless you really have nothing else to do.  more »
  • Is located in the area of Dan Carlos Royal to about 3-4 km from the historic quarter. It is a beautiful building, you can appreciate it unfortunately only from outside due to danger of collapse.

  • 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.
  • Linda
  • Beautiful city, a shame that the plaza de toros is in that State, will fall Uruguayans, protect such heritage
