Very impressive, we loved the history of the bull ring and the stories of the matadors. There is an interesting collection of painting and artifacts. I like the audio guide. It brings a sense of drama to what you are seeing. The only thing that could be better is the tour is too quick. You get pushed along. Personally I like to reflect a little bit on what I'm seeing and hearing. Still recommend though.
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.
You can get an excursion for reasonable price. not overly exciting, but at the end you are allowed into the arena. thats cool
Its oke the audio guide is good the tour is interesting. But for the price the tour is very short... it's a cool place just the tour is very short...
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.
