We took the metro from our hotel to the Plaza de Toros (Las Ventas) and stepped off the subway directly onto the site. Easy and inexpensive navigating. We enjoyed using the audio guide to tour the small museum and the large arena. The informative tour gave us greater insight into this national pastime.

Do not go if you aren't planning on seeing 6 Bulls getting.stabbed to death after a grueling 20 minutes. Maybe we're naive, but we did not know that bull fighting consists of torturing a bull for purely entertainment purposes. No wonder this "game" is outlawed everywhere in Spain except Madrid. Reminded me of gladiators in the Romans colluseum. However, instead... More

People of Spain were a little un-welcoming to tourists. The open and closing times are stated on the door for 7p.m, we got there at 6:30pm, and we were informed that they close at 6:30 and we can only go up to see the museum, what a waste for 2 euros, not worth the visit and the rude receptionist that...

I must say, way sadder and more difficult to get through than I could have imagined. This isn't for the weak of heart - especially for animals. The ceremony and crowd of it was interesting... More

There is a show at 7 PM every day. So we missed it because we didn't know about it. However we had a fantastic tour of the entire place with our audio guide.

People of Spain were a little un-welcoming to tourists. While traveling in Spain one cannot help but see the lack of diversity of trees as Spain clears the land of natural trees for Olive trees. One would also see the resulting lack of insects and variety of birds given the country's interest in olive trees alone. Miles and miles of... More

Ignore previous posts, the Bullfighting Museum is free. This is located at the back of the bull ring (walk around the outside) once inside you learn about the past bull Fighters and what the wore. The bull ring it's self has a 14€ charge, with this, you get to visit the inside of the bulk ring
