Calle Monasterio de Silos 175, 28049 Madrid, Spain
This was not a fun experience. We left after the first fight...it was hard to watch, seats are uncomfortable, it was hot.... as we were leaving, there were a crowd of other "tourist" like me leaving...
Something to experience on a first visit to Madrid but will definitely not buy tickets for this event on my next visit to Madrid. Very difficult to watch all 3 matches where the bull does not stand a chance; is tortured, taunted and is killed...More

We were in two minds about going to a bullfight , right up until the day. We did not book and decided if we couldnt get a ticket we wouldnt be too upset. We got the train from retiro to las ventas and as soon...More
