The bullfighting arena is situated in a park at the very top edge of the town. Most people stumble on it by accident as it is at the back of a large market held on the street leading to it. The market attracts droves of tourists and is good fun to wander around for an hour or so.
We went to visit the market on our holiday and I was so shocked and sad to see this building in real life. Please don't visit or support this!!! It's awful. Those bulls are dead before they enter the ring. An animal has no chance when a man/women has a weapon, If only there wasn't a such thing as weapons...
walked from our hotel to Plaza de Torres today in hope to watch a real bull fight only arrived to find the place empty. Looked like a great place but not sure when they run bull fights. How can we find out?
I and my husband were taken out here for a meal some time ago by someone who knew I was very anti bull fighting, bit of a power trip.
The food was mediocre, and overpriced, and felt very unhappy there.
Beautiful building used to torment bulls who have as much choice as gladiators....now what year are we in?
Great just to see the history of the place & the amazing arena. Don't agree with bull fighting as of old but it seems much more a display now, though we only visited the building & did not attend on a fight day
