Thought that 15 Euros was too expensive for what you got to see then to be forced to have your photo taken and asked for another 10 Euros was beyond a joke. Seen the bullring at Ronda which was cheaper, better and far more interesting....More

We wandered through the museum at the end of the audio tour in the bullring and although there were some interesting artefacts, I wouldn’t say it was a must see. I certainly wouldn’t entertain a group guided tour here as some people had. Breezing through...More

You can take the Metro to Las Ventas station or walk, especially if you feel like removing yourself from the crowed streets of Madrid. It takes about 40 minutes to walk. Although I visited the bullring on a public holiday, it was well worth it....More
