Excellent visit. Super fun and to be seen. Not enough explanations in English, but nevertheless memorable. Can’t be missed.

This was a must see for me in Ronda because it is the home of bullfighting. I disagree with bullfighting and hopefully some day soon it will be consigned to history. However we cannot erase history so with this attitude I decided to visit Plaza...More

An impressive building and important historical landmark, despite its terrible use. It is the oldest and most monumental of all Plazas de Toros.

One of the oldest equestrian centers in Europe is right next to the plaza and you can see the horses being ridden around. The plaza is a great historical spot you can’t miss

We truthfully did not realize that bullfighting still takes place in Spain. With the audio tour it was most interesting to tour behind the scenes of the historic Plaza de Toros.

We are not supporters of bull-fighting, we consider it a cruel form of entertainment. However, we were very impressed by the tour (audio guide), the historical significance of the bullring and bullfighting, and that to this day horses and riders are trained here in dressage....More

Plaza de Toros, the oldest all-stone bullring in Spain. We had zero interest in attending a bull fight, but the history of the sport and how it relates to the Spanish culture was very interesting.

Although Seville bullring is possibly the top bullring in Spain, the one at Ronda from 1785 is the oldest and one of the most important. Pedro Romero who founded the classic Ronda style of bullfighting is considered to be the father of modern bullfighting.
