Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas, Madrid

4.1
Witness the traditional sport of bullfighting at Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. This architecturally stunning 25,000-capacity arena is considered the home of bullfighting in Spain. Fights can be very gory and are not for the faint-hearted. If you would like to see the building, but want to skip the bullfight, take a guided tour or audio tour. Tours visit the key parts of the stadium, including the bullring, the stands, and the bull gates. You’ll learn the history and rules of Spanish bullfighting. Spend some time on the terrace to appreciate the arena’s neo-Mudéjar architecture. Plan trip to Madrid with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • For around 14 euros you’ll visit the most important bullfighting ring in Madrid. You’ll get an audio guide (over 10 languages available) and a chance to walk through the ring (literally inside!) at your leisure. There’s also a museum area where you’ll learn the most famous bulls and bull-men (?) to have stepped in the arena. You’ll also get to learn why bullfighting is tied hand-in-hand with Spain’s history. Very insightful!
  • Truly spanish experience. Although watching an animal die for sport can feel a bit grim. You come to appreciate the way in which it happens. The dance so to say will be remembered forever.
