Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza information
In the world of bullfighting Seville’s bullring is the Old Trafford and Camp Nou. In other words, if you’re selected to fight here then you’ve made it. In addition to being regarded as a building of almost religious significance to fans, it’s also the oldest ring in Spain (building began in 1758) and it was here, along with the bullring in Ronda, that bullfighting on foot began in the 18th century.
Slightly rushed guided visits , in English and Spanish, take you into the ring and its museum.
