It is not the same than watching the Colosseo in Rome, but not only for the size. This Plaza de toros from old times is ruined and nobody takes care of it, even though they show you it in the city tour, but only from...More

We had a great driver that took us a little of the beat n track and came across Plaza de Toros. While closed, you can still see how this could have been a gathering points way back when. Very cool piece of history.

It was interesting to view this structure, the steelwork was fabricated in Great Britain. There is a railway museum opposite. There are plans to refurbish part of the arena to provide a concert venue.

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.

It's an abandoned place, nothing especial, probably the most interesting and special thing was all the way before to arrive there from the historical center.

Regrettably, the bull ring building can only be seen from outside because of a fence around it. The iron and brick construction is Interesting as well as its middle age arabic style. Far from the old town, better reach it by bus, bycicle or car.

Sadly, the bull ring is a dilapidated ruin that you can only see from outside a fence. Interesting iron construction with a crumbling brick exterior. Not worth the walk from the old town.

Walked here in the morning from hotel, the best thing is the walk although long at around a hour and half each way is the beaches along the coastal path. Once at the bullring, it is in need of some TLC, its not open but...More
