Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos

4 km from the city center or Historic Centre. Moorish style. Very similar to Spain’s bullrings. Designed by an Argentinian architect. Almost abandoned. A pity really!

The way walking by the Rambla it's very nice and have a lots of spots to stop and enjoy the view to the riverside, that's on the way to the "plaza de toros" . Do not loose time going there buy you can not visit it, only ho around the building That's closed. At least you are a fanatic.

Pretty to look at wouldn't have made a special trip to see it but was a stop on our hop on hop off bus. Bus stopped for us to take pictures for around 5 minutes which is plenty of time. Can only see the outside as is fenced off.

The "Plaza de Toros" was active only for 2 years: from 1910 to 1912. Now it is abandoned and closed to the public. If you are staying near it (which was my case) or passing by, you can go and take some photos from outside. But if you are in the city centre don't waste your time going there.

We came here on our diy bike ride. It's closed off so you can only go around it but very atmospheric place.

Good place to visit but keep in mind there are no internal tours.it looks like the interior needs a rebuild so it can be opened for tourists. You can get there by car or tour bus (bus stop #6)

I was walking in the morning with friends. It happened that we ended up at the arena after detouring from the riverside avenue. Unfortunately it is getting in ruins and closed to people. Probably it was a nice place to visit in the past, even if you don't like or if you disapprove bullfighting.

A pitty because this place is a piece of history of Colonia. Unfortunately the city has not treated this historic place with the respect if deserves. Hope that they invest in this attraction some money to put it in good conditions.

Nice Moorish architecture, stop here for some photos, but that is really about all to do here for the tourist.

This place has been closed for almost 100 years. However, if you like abandoned things, this is for you. It's fenced off so you can't actually go inside the crumbling structure. Still a cool site to take in if you are in colonia. It's a pretty short bike ride along the coast (approx 2.5 miles).
