Museo Taurino, Seville Reviews
The second most important plaza in Spain and probably the third most important in the world. The atmosphere is usually electric but to be frank it's the most uncomfortable ring I know and the standard of the spectacles in 2018 has been rather poor. The museum is fascinating if you're a novice to the Fiesta Brava but rather underwhelming if you're aficionado. Getting in and out can be a trial but it still ranks as a good visit.
the highlight of this trip really is JUST the bull ring. being able to go in the middle and imagine yourself as a matador is worth the 8euros. how often would any attractions actually let you get right down to the middle and step on the actual site and be amazed by the surrounding of seats and sand that cover the floor.... the tour wasn't organized that well and you use a headset like at the sagrado familia which in this case doesn't tell you much except how much the Spanish people respect the bull and the matador. all in all worth the visit of you are just sick of one cathedral after another. take the time to breath in the air when you are center stage where the action happens....
A bullfighting museum with few worthy exhibits...not worth 8 Euros? Hard to say but it’s kind of a rare Spanish thing. I have seen one in Madrid and here in Seville. Kids only pay 3€ so the cost will even out. If you have couple free hours consider it.
If you buy a ticket you buy for the tour. You have to go round in a group, cannot go on your own but the tour is very interesting. Was good site to see. Shame I won't be in Sevilla for when an event takes place but a great insight into the world of the bull
It's incredible that these days people still consider fun watching animals get killed. And pay for it. I wonder if PETA has a branch in Spain.
