We visited the arena and two museums with the audio guide, which makes the visit all the more interesting. History and sounds were at the reach of our ears! The first two parts of the visit are very well guided, and the sequence is nicely...More

Even though we’re deeply against the sport of bullfighting, our family really enjoyed this historical museum and bullfighting ring. The museum is excellent and the ring itself is open so that you can step inside and take it all in. This is one of the...More

I've been to every bullfighting museum in every town I've visited that had one, and the rings if possible over the past 10 years. Most are for aficionados. Some suits of lights and some bulls' heads, not much in the way of explanation. I don't...More

Really enjoyed Ronda and the "bull ring" .... Very interesting with all the history of the region, bull fighting as well as an historical armoury with the history of duelling. Great

Apparently there are only 5 surviving bullrings left in Spain. This was the first, and having visited the one in Seville, I can say this is the better of the two. The architecture is far more interesting, the ring amphitheatre is brilliant, and the audio...More

Don't miss this, it's fascinating. We did the audio guided tour & ended up staying for 3 hours! There's so much more here than a bullring. Loved the displays of posters, military uniforms, costumes & the riding school. Highly recommend the rooftop bar in the...More

The bull ring is incredible. It's beautiful, heroic and desperately sad. For an extra few euros we paid for the audio tour and it was well worth it. They information provided really adds to the visit. It's an amazing arena but find it terribly cruel...More
