Even if you consider bullfighting as barbaric it is part of our history and this place explains a lot of how it started from hunting wild cattle for food to become a sport and all that went along with it.
Certainly worth a visit if...More
There’s a beautiful collection of bullfighting costumes, horse regalia, photographs and advertisements for bullfighting.
Great little history lesson.
Although I don’t think I could ever watchable fight in person( too cruel for me) it was an interesting place to visit.
It's impossible to go to Andalucia and not consider learning about bullfighting. It is very much a part of the culture. It's filled with religion, art, and tradition. Once visits the museum, which is located within the arena, with exhibits on paintings, costumes and posters...More

No. The bullring in Ronda is the most important Plaza de Toros in Spain and is only used for bullfights one weekend per year, during the town's annual fiesta. The Goyesca Corrida(bullfight) is held on the Saturday (the penultimate day) if Ronda's fiesta. The fiesta takes place in the first week of September, normally. I think the Goyesca Saturday this year is on the 9th of September. The Goyesca attracts the world's best toreros.
On the Friday, a bullfight featuring young toreros (bullfighters) is held. These toreros are normally in their late teens, early 20's and are just a year or so shy of being qualified, having started training for the corrida at the age of 8 or 9.
