What will you find?

Head inside Madrid’s iconic bullring with your entrance ticket and start exploring. Pick up your audio guide at the entrance or simply walk around at leisure. The audio-guided tour lasts 45 minutes and the commentary explains the bullring’s history as well as the tradition of bullfighting itself – a controversial sport yet one that remains deeply ingrained in Spanish culture.

Originally, bulls were fought by Spanish nobleman on horseback, but following a ban on this by King Felipe V in the 1700s, men on the ground decided to fight the bulls instead. Corrida de toros (classic bullfighting – the type that takes place inside Las Ventas) became popular with the Spanish masses and a tradition was borne.

Stroll around key sites inside the building, stopping for photos by the main entrance, and then visiting the tendidos – the four different levels of seating that ring the arena. Walk around the alleyway behind the main ring, where the matadors escape the raging bulls, and see stadium’s most significant gateways. The Door of Madrid has gained popularity with sightseers as it’s the exit door reserved for the winning matadors.

Besides seeing key sites inside the arena, the Bullring's intriguing architecture is also worth admiring. Designed in 1931 by Spanish architect José Espeliú, the building boasts a beautiful brick façade created in a Neo-Moorish style. Gaze at the intricately styled ceramic tiles that adorn the stadium walls, and admire the glazed plaques that hold the shields of each Spanish province.

You ticket allows you to spend as long as you like in the stadium. Any food or drinks from the on-site café are at your own expense.

  1. Such an interesting place! The architecture of Las Ventas bullring is incredible, and the audio guide is very informative. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a glimpse at an important part of Spanish culture.
  2. This was a very affordable Go at your own pace tour. You receive a phone that directs you to each station where you learn all about the history of the Las Ventas Bullring. Definitely interesting and a great part of spanish culture to experience. Wouldn't recommend for children.
