Hopefully bullfighting is soon abolished and this arena is used for sports, and cultural events. As mentioned previously, it is a beautiful building built for a grotesque spectacle

Didn't get in there because it's closed by the mayor that is against the drove of bulls. I agree but it's still a very beautiful place that has to be used somehow. At least go for a pic outside!
