“Interesting and old...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

....but there isn't much to do here. Most tourists will probably see it from the vantage point of one of the buses that takes a circle tour of Colonia. It is long abandoned and inaccessible for entry, so the only thing that you can do is see it from the outside.

“Imagination necessary!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

So, this abandoned behemoth, which now sits in the middle of the roundabout, used to be a bull ring, complete with grand entrances and galleries for spectators long gone now. Ah, but if one just uses some imagination - like at the colosseum in Rome - one can almost imagine the energy and excitement of the place.

“ABANDONED!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Why are the city officials of Colonia del Sacramento have let this building fell apart over the years? The Plaza de Toros should be sold to foreign private investors with the condition to preserve the outside walls and converted into a shopping center with an attractive food court.

“What could have been”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

I was actually fascinated by this area, luckily we had a guide who provided us with the history of the 3 main buildings (Bullring, Casino and Jai Alai Centre) as part of a visionary touristic venture in the early 1900's. Bull fighting was actually banned in 1912 and there were only 8 meetings. Unfortunately all the buildings are in poor shape and entry is not allowed, although it is said that they are looking to renovate them as part of the history.
