Las Ventas Bullring was declared an artistic historical heritage in 1994. The biggest event that houses the Las Ventas Bullring is undoubtedly the San Isidro Fair, one of the events which has consolidated it as the best bullring in the world.
Las Ventas Bullring has been designed and built in the Neo Mudejar style. The Neo Mudejar is the most characteristic style of the bullrings in Spain.

    Fun experience. Audio guided tour that was very informative. Would have enjoyed a live tour so we could ask questions. But this was well organized and interesting.

    Loved all especially the museum. It was wonderful to see sll the different bullfighter clothes, trajes de luces and “capotes”

    I liked the virtual reality experience it was so rewarding to feel what the matador risks and to know that I can fight a bull even virtually. The only downside is that the virtual reality game should be longer. I enjoyed the rewarding training I received from the trainer who was patient and encouraging. The photo of me being a matador fighting s bull, that I received was the good surprise.

    A faire absolument. Notre guide Raul était formidable et très drôle. Pleins d’histoires et d’anecdotes sur le lieu et sur la tauromachie.

    This tour was a lot of fun, and very interesting. There was more to see and do than we expected. We actually did a 3D virtual matador sequence with goggles, with a bull in the bullring! It was so realistic. We also got our photos taken, and our heads put on the bodies of matadors. It looked so real our friends thought we were really in the ring! This is a self-guided audio tour, which worked well. The audio portion made it easy to tour the museum and bullring, in a step-by-step process. We learned a great deal about the history of bullfighting, and the impact this has had on the Spanish culture. The entire tour was fascinating.

    Arrived for 10 to be told that it's actually not opening till 11. Kept being sent to different places to try and exchange my voucher. When I eventually got into the place it was great, such a good place to see. However as I was taking photos in the arena someone turned the sprinkler on and absolutely soaked my drenching my phone. No Apology or anything. At the end I was rushed out as they obviously has some event on.

    Great way to learn about the history of bullfighting without having to actually go to one! Self guided and at your own pace. Definitely recommend.

    Very informative tour with audio of this impressive stadium and Museum. The staff are very friendly and helpful and even recommended an excellent restaurant nearby (Cesar Las Ventas). Well worth a visit even if you aren't a fan of bullfighting.
