In modern times, the principal activities are devoted to the conservation of its unique historical and artistic heritage.

I'm not all the keen on bullfighting, but I rate this attraction a must-see. You can walk through the entire set up and see how the bulls are moved through. They'll even let you out to the ring. The highlight for us, though, was the...More

Great old building, didn’t do the tour, but lovely to stroll round the outside before taking in the lovely park nearby!

Rhonda is famous for bull fighting. Once it was the main reason to venture up from Torremolinos. Ancient city that now thrives on tourism. Watch out for the multitude of tour buses and crowds being led by flag bearing tour guides. Best to visit in...More

At 7€ each we thought this place a little overpriced for what it is. Perhaps the bull ring should be priced separately to the museum as we found the history of the bull ring moderately interesting, the museum less so. Maybe 2€ for the bull...More

This was apparently one of the first (or the first?) bullfighting rings in Spain. There's a ring itself, a museum and a still functioning riding school. The museum has an interesting weapons collection, among other things. Overall, I wouldn't call it a must visit, but...More

Like most reviewers we are totally against the brutality of bull fighting, but we're keen to see the arena. We paid for the audio guide which was great. The horse and bull pen were inaccessible although they were on both the map and audio guide....More
