Full description
With over 80 years of history, the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas is one of Madrid's most important monuments. Tour Spain's largest bullring, experiencing how it feels to be the bullfighter, the bull, and amongst the onlooking crowds enveloped by the immense Neo-Mudéjar structure. Designed by José Espeliú, the Plaza de Toros was built in 1929 to accommodate the rising status of the country's national passion, and attracted some of the best bullfighters in history as well as celebrated personalities and luminaries into the stands.

Overall it was an interesting tour. Includes: - self guided audio tour of the bullfighting arena - virtual reality bull fight - mocked up photos of you as a matador that you can purchase for €10 - video clips of bullfighting - gift shop - museum Note: you are asked to leave a form of ID (passport, NIE etc) at the entrance which you will get back when you return the audio guide). If you’re going with young children you can leave your buggy in a secure area at the entrance and pick it up afterwards. It’s right on the metro too so easily accessible (line 2 or 5 to Ventas).

Completely stunning visit in a such a big (biggest of Spain ) bullring. The price is very fair, you’ll get a head phones on your language and you can listen at the story through your visit. You’ll get the chance as well to have a virtual bullfight and visit the museum , I’ve been at many “plazas” but this one is the most complete one . Totally recommended

Great insight in the bullfight history and atmosphere. Must see!

Great opportunity to walk through the famous bull fight arena and get the "smell" of the atmosphere of the Corrida even there are no fights scheduled for the week. We enjoyed all, the walk through with audio guide, audiovisual documents on screens, the museum and the arena itself. Definitely "must see" in Madrid.
