Las Ventas Tour-Ticket Only
Enjoy the history of the Madrid Bullring on this tour, which takes you to the Plaza Monumental de las Ventas del Espiritu Santo as well as the Madrid Bullfighting Museum.
LAS VENTAS, MORE THAN A FIESTA! Welcome to Madrid's Bullring, the Plaza Monumental de las Ventas del Espíritu Santo, the international centre of bullfighting. Your visit will capture your imagination, showing you the tauromaquia's heart and soul, where the world’s finest matadors showcase their artistry and skill. Inaugurated in 1931, the Bullring was designed by architect, José Espeliú, and consists of a metal structure with a brick façade in the Neo-Moorish design style.
The bullring is the work of architect, Manuel Muñoz Monasterio and has decorative ceramic tiling and 52 glazed plaques which hold the shields of every province in Spain. Take a guided tour around the key parts of the building, from the main entrance to the tendidos, the callejón, and various significant gate ways. Learn about the three starring roles in this magnificent spectacle: the audience, the bullfighter and the bull, and what the Fiesta means to a global audience.
Visit the Madrid Bullfighting Museum at the “Patio de Caballos”, which is part of the complex, and includes a collection that explains the history of bullfighting in Spain. You will see engravings from Goya's tauromachy, bullfighters’ costumes from the twentieth century, a section devoted exclusively to Manolete and a large amount of material bearing witness to the historical origins of the Las Ventas Bullring.
