We are very anti-bull fighting and didn't think we would ever go inside a bull ring but as we had some time to spare we decided to have a look inside. From a historic point of view we found it all a bit fascinating and...More

Recommend a guide to explain the history about their bull fighting. Even if we non Spanish dislike it it's interesting to hear about all stages in the "fight"

This was my second visit to Ronda and I still went to re visit the Bull Ring. I do not believe in Bull fighting but it is still worth a visit for curiosity sakes.

This was something to do while spending the afternoon in Ronda. Wasn't too expensive and we splurged for the headset guided tour. Interesting history of the bull ring and bull fighting over the centuries.

The museum was interesting. To see how tiny the matadors outfits were was fascinating. To see the history of what the bullring was used for was quite an education. The seating capacity is 6,000! Definitely worth a visit.

I visited this attraction with the same prism as I did the Roman Coliseum. Its historical and architectural value is significant. We rented the audio guide and sat in the stands and listened to the detailed program. It was a hot day and the shade...More
