  • Hard to understand for a North American that this passion for bullfighting. That said, a guided tour is very informative. The bull is carefully bred for this duel with the bullfighter. The latter must show his art through his gestures and the mysterious dance done with the animal. It is a pity that it ends with the death of the animal although it has been said that sometimes when the duel is successful, the animal is pardoned. Unfortunately, this does not seem to happen frequently.

  • Too bad you can't see a bullfight. It is still interesting a guided tour inside the plaza to understand the importance of bullfighting in the life of the Sevilles and the complex ritual of the event.

  • A Bullring - not to every bodies taste! But if you are visiting this is part of the traditions and heritage of Spain, was really interesting to go behind the scenes and see the rooms used. Actually on the ring itself you get a feel for the nature of this cultural event. If you have an opinion and have not been then visiting will give you more of an insight. Well worth the small cost. Audio guide is useful as the guide on the tour only provides small details.
  • Well, you have to understand the culture and history. The debate of bullfighting is apart from visiting this historic place. It is very well kept and has some interesting historical points about bullfighting. Good to see the building at least. Please like my reviews.
