Worth visiting and a high-light of wonderful Ronda

Worth visiting whilst in this fantastic city ~ a genuine Spanish Bull Ring full of historical atmosphere as well as being culturally informative. Don't miss it when in Ronda.

A very practical and "what you see is what you get" look at one of the "isms" of Spain's culture - bullfighting. You get to see where the bulls are prepared, the chutes they travel to the ring, and ultimately you get to stand in the ring where the action takes place. You can honestly feel the history for those... More

If you decide to visit it make sure you also book a guide. There is a lot of history surrounding this place.

Architecturally beautiful, and very interesting to gain an insight into this part of Spanish Culture. I am an animal lover and would say I am against Bullfighting, but there's no denial that it holds a special place in Spanish Culture and History. Well worth the entry fee.

if you are visiting the bullring - and because you are also interested in a lot of things connected to it, you might want to have a guide that knows a thing or two. ours was not one, so after all it wasn't such a wow experience visiting. the bullring itself is really huge and has a lot of history...

While the act of bullfighting in it's original form doesn't make me very happy - the fast that Ronda was one of the first bull fighting rings to change to artistic bull fighting makes it easier to step into the ring. Feet in the red/sand/clay - you can't help but imagine the matador's and the fury of the bulls and... More

We decided that we would visit the bullring while staying in ronda for a few days. We left it until our last day and it was the only payed for attraction we visited. After some research we decided we would take the audioguide as it was highly recommended in previous reviews. We turned up to find out that the audioguides... More
