Your experience

Highlights

  • Walk across the fabled sand where bull and fighter face off
  • Explore the stands where the adoring public watches and spot the President’s Balcony and the beautiful Royal Box
  • Admire the neo-Moorish architecture and try to spot the ceramic heraldic crests of all 50 Spanish provinces that adorn the arena

Description

Las Ventas is the national home of Spain's most traditional pastime, the Toreo. This tour allows you to explore the historic arena at your own pace (with the help of an audio guide) and understand the rituals and splendour that have captivated a nation for generations.

They begin at the Puerta Grande and immediately begin to understand how bullfighting has affected the Spanish audience. It is covered with plaques and tributes that tell the story of past glories and inspire matadors from all over Spain and beyond.

From there it goes to the Tendidios - the grandstands where the worshipping audience can experience the events. You will experience the full extent of the Neo-Moorish arena, including the Royal Box and the presidential balcony. On a hot day you will understand why the shady places are worth a bonus!

Then descend to the most important part: the ring. They cross the sand where bulls and fighters meet. View the stadium from this vantage point and understand the glorification surrounding a successful matador. Or imagine the gasps of 24,000 people when a bull's horns hit the torso of a torero.

From there you go into the secret depths of the arena and explore the gates, corridors and chiqueros (bull cages) from which the bulls come. They will see things from their point of view and also visit the corridor of the infirmary. No bullfighter ever wants to visit them, but they all will.

You will not see any bullfights during the tour and this tour is interesting for those who like to get to know the Spanish culture and customs.
