Plaza de Toros Monumental Las Ventas

Place of Interest Open in this Schedule Check location

Las Ventas is the largest bullring in Spain, home to one of Spain’s biggest passions: bullfighting. This tradition was so popular that in the early 20th century, the main ring became too small and in 1922 a new arena was proposed, opening nine years later.

Visitors are allowed without booking a bullfight and the tour includes a virtual bullfighting game and visits to the infirmary and the chapel. With a seating capacity of 23.798, the bullring was designed by José Espeliú in a Neo Mudejar style, of Moorish influence. The façade of the Bullring is made of exposed brick with glazed ceramic incrustations representing the shields of all Spanish provinces.

The ring is also used for the Fair of San Isidro and musical concerts and hosts a museum about the legendary Spanish bullfighters.

The bullfighting season starts February and ends by the middle of October, with more than 70 events.
