The Palacio Vistalegre is a multipurpose arena located in Madrid, Spain. It was built on the site of the former bullring, "Plaza de toros de Vista Alegre", built in 1906 and demolished in 1995. The venue is composed of three main spaces: The Arena, The Center and the Sala San Miguel (formerly known as The Box).
In 1980, the original bullring closed, and the site stood empty until plans were unveiled in 1996 for the modern arena, which would also be capable of staging bullfights.
The arena was opened in 2000, offering a seating capacity of 14,000 and has 1,015 parking places.

  • We went to a concert somewhat fearful of acoustics, which we had read that was not entirely good, but in that respect the result was good. With metro stop very close, the accesses are quite comfortable. Inside the toilets are quite scarce, large queues were mounted.

  • 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 😊
