Create an itinerary including Plaza de Toros de Ronda
In atmospheric Plaza de Toros de Ronda, it's easy to imagine a raucous crowd letting out a collective "Olé!" as a costumed bullfighter deftly averts a steaming-mad bull. At one time, this was one of Spain's most important bullrings. It features 136 pillars and 68 arches lining 2 rows of seating and a stone passageway leading to the large dirt circle in the middle. Its rural location means bullfights take place infrequently these days, but tours of the arena and bullpens remain on offer. Check out the small chapel where bullfighters pray before taking to the ring. To see collections of royal harnesses and antique firearms, head into the museum.

  • A bit expensive for what it is but a place that has to be seen once in Ronda I think. If you appreciate architecture you’ll enjoy your visit.

  • I don’t support bill fights or killing bulls and animals just for fun. It’s sad that they still use this space for the fights , so you can see their blood on the ground sometimes 😞. The inside is cool to look at though, it’s cool to read about the place and the history inside of the venue. It’s cool that Madonna shot her music video here. Nice and central location. Paid €8 to enter.
  • Bull ring and a museum you must visit. The second best tourist attraction of the town. Of course the first is the bridge. A long walk through the story of bull fighting with lots of history and collected items. The best still is stand in the middle of the bullring on the sand and imagine the fight.
