With metro stop very close, the accesses are quite comfortable. Inside the toilets are quite scarce, large queues were mounted.
Es una estupenda plaza de toros, plaza cubierta, asientos muy cómodos, una plaza moderna y con gran capacidad, espero que se aproveche más para este tipo de espectáculos more »It is a great bullring, covered square, very comfortable seats, a modern and large capacity square, I hope you will take more advantage for this type of shows
We went for the Javier Fernandez's show "Revolution on Ice ". Although the show was great, we couldn't see it well. The theatre (an old bullfight arena), is huge, but the seats are not comfortable at all, they are really hard and very close one to the other. The place was cold, the sound bad, the lights didn't let you see the scene. I would go to the show again, but it costs a fortune to buy better seats, closer to the stage.
Great big venue with excellent air con! There is a supermarket just outside for convenience. Very easy to get to via public transport. I had a very good experience 😊
