Like it or not bullfighting was an intergalactic Part of Spanish history. We travelled by bus from Mojácar to Vera. The bullring is easy to spot and you get off the next stop. Two Spanish gentlemen appear to run the museum and when one saw...More

Free to enter and interesting to walk around inside. It's a beautiful building and you can feel its history, without needing to experience a bullfight!
