Beyond the Iberian peninsula most people are rather uncomfortable about bullfighting, which makes a visit to this venerable bullring with attached museums all the more fascinating – not least for those who would never consider attending a bullfight. An inspection of the ring, and the backstage facilities that sustain it (the Plaza, of necessity, has its own ER) is a good counterpoint to a browse around a museum which is full of artwork and costumes celebrating the skill of the matador together with the mounted heads of their animal nemeses. Go with an open mind and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of bullfighting’s place in the life and culture of Andalucía.

No Bull fights on our visit we don't agree with animal cruelty but if you want to experience the Spanish tradition this is a great place to visit, lots of history about Bull fights great museum. Great to visit takes around 1 to 2 hrs with guide. Reasonable price. Highly recommended Steve Uk

We visited on a Monday afternoon. Entry is free from 3-5pm. You have to arrive early to line up for a ticket. They don't start issuing them until 3. We arrived around 2:40 and there was already a good size line. We got tickets for the 4:10 tour. I think closer to high season you would have to get there... More

We had an excellent guide, who explained in detail and with great enthusiasm, all about the history and traditions of the bull ring. The building itself is very beautiful and gives a real feel of the artistry and excitiement that locals must experience. It appears to be newly refurbished, some work is still ongoing. The stables and chapel are able... More

We were lucky to find tickets for "corrida". For a higher price you can find tickets in front of the arena, but normally for the next day, only. It is an unique experience, at least once in your life, because they still keep the tradition and every "corrida" is a celebration.

This is the oldest bull ring in Spain and the tour is well worth taking with the guides. We found the museum Fascinating with costumes and artefacts from the past. Then walk through the archway by the chapel and Torredors living quarters leads in to the cathedral part of the city.

We enjoyed the visit, but the group felt large, and a little rushed through the exhibition rooms. Entering the arena was an exciting moment, imagining the crowds and pageantry in the bull-fighting season.

I saw one bullfight in my life and that was enough. However, this is part of the culture and worth a stop. The guides give both a Spanish and English interpretation of all the topics which is really nice unless some people continue to talk when their part is done--RUDE! Some of the outfits were amazing and costing upwards of... More

When you visit the Toros de la Maestranza you pay €8 for entrance this also includes the guided tour. Entrance without guidance tour is not possible. The tour takes about 40 minutes and is very interesting! Tour is available in English and Spanish

Entrance is free on Monday afternoon at 3pm. So a queue formed and was slow to move. This was because you have to take a guided tour and book a time for the tour. Interesting museum, art and we finished by going into the ring.

Nice and interesting guided visit at the Sevilla bullring where you can better understand how the corrida works and a bit of history about that.
