We went to a bull breeding farm the day before and seeing the bull stadium really put everything together. Very interesting and make sure that you sit on the steps.

Where thousands of bulls have met their end - and some bullfighters too - a must see while in Ronda. You can actually go out into the arena where the bullfighting takes place and do visit the museum as well.

I was pretty excited to visit this bull ring until the workers ignored me to talk to a pretty and local tour guide that cut in front of me even though I was next in line. I started to ask in my broken Spanish if credit cards were accepted and he didn't even let me finish. Can't believe at such... More

Over several years holidaying in Andalucia I have made the most important excursions in that region of Spain : Granada, Seville, and Cordoba. This year was the turn of Ronda and its bull ring.

In addition to seeing one of the oldest rings in Spain, visitors see displays of costumes and artwork, weaponry, dueling, a dressage school and indoor practice area. Culturally informative and different.

This bullring, currently still in use, is definitely worth seeing. It has a wonderful museum of the history of bull fighting, as well as costumes used historically and presently in bullfighting. We really enjoyed this place!

Bull fighting - a large part of Spanish culture indeed. Thankfully in languish. The Arena is great to visit as a monument. But Bull fighting belongs in the museum...
