Came there as a tourist. The guided tour was very brief but there is some room for questions. We also went to the evening bullfight and the nice thing about it is that you can buy any seats and not having to worry about sitting in the sun. Be aware about the space for seats. It's extremely confined and I highly recommend you to book well in advance and in one of the large aisle. If you plan on booking seats yourself you'll have to get the tickets shipped to an address in Spain at least 4 days prior to the event. Or go to the arena and buy it there
Fantastic tour! We wandered upon this just to see the structure and happened to get on a tour leaving that moment. Only 9 euros and worth every penny. The tour guide was great, spoke the entire tour first in Spanish, then in English, and allowed the opposite group to see the paintings, artifacts, etc. while the other language was being spoken. You're taken out onto the main bullfighting arena to get more information and great views. This is an absolute must for anyone else visiting.
Museum was simple and enjoyable. Artifacts and images were well laid out in the rooms and the tour was not terribly cramped. Think we had about 30 people on our tour which splits between Spanish and English in one tour. Done the tour several times over the years with the first time (March time frame) they only permitted us to go in the stands after the tour and the last time (June) they allowed use to walk on the arena floor and walk around which was a cool treat. Takes about 30-45 min to do everything and hit the timing on when the tour starts.
Beautiful arena...... it took us 30 min to get inside.... so I do recommend getting early before the show starts.... but once in it was just fascinating.... my first bull fight.... didn't know what to expect..... it's was just fascinating seeing the show and the show man ship the matadors present...... But I must say.... I had tears in my eyes when the bulls were finally put down.... was very emotional seeing them helpless......
Whilst I completely disapprove of the practice, it's still an interesting part of the Spanish history. With the ring taking over 100 heads to be built, it's still a fascinating building. €8 euros entry and tours every 20 minutes that runs for 40 minutes. And as other reviewers note, it's given in both Spanish and English.
