I'm not sure I would be comfortable going to an actual bullfight, but as a building and piece of cultural history this is fascinating. We had virtually no wait for the tour, which is an audio guide supported by a 'real' guide. The audio itself...More

This is worth a visit. It does not tale long but the posters and costumes are worth seeing. The opportunity to stand at the centre of the bullring was a highlight for me. It has to be the most beautiful Plaza de Toros in Spain.

A great idea to see such an iconic building but the guide did not allow enough time in each area to listen to the audio guide. Therefore we did not get the chance to see the museum exhibits properly. With more time it would be...More

Sorry, we just visited the ring and did a guided tour. There were no bull fights on during our stay.
