Many restaurants in southern Spain have mounted bull heads on their walls, above a plaque giving the bull's name and recording where, when and by whom the bull was defeated (killed). If you're at all curious about this facet of Spanish culture, the Museo Municipal...More

OK, if you hate the whole concept of bullfighting, don’t go here. However if you are open minded enough to want to learn more about the history (it goes back 1000 years) and more about the bulls and how they are raised, it is worth...More

This museum honours both the bull and the bullfighter that enter the arena. Historical information on famous fighters, several heads mounted on the walls of their defeated advoserries (all bulls), videos, sculptures, posters and paintings. A very interesting small museum for those with diversified interests.

You don't have to like bullfighting but they help you appreciate the art and culture behind bullfighting. The museum staff was incredibly polite and considerate and would play the videos in your chosen language. There was a lot of pride and craftsmanship within the design...More
