Itinerary

Las Ventas, more than a fiesta!

Welcome to Madrid´s bullring, the Plaza Monumental de las Ventas del Espíritu Santo, the international center of bullfighting.

On your visit you will discover a place which is emblematic of the heart and soul of tauromaquia, where the world’s finest matadors present 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 style of Neo-Moorish design. The bullring is decorated with ceramic tiling as well as 52 glazed plaques which hold the shields of every province of Spain, the work of architect Manuel Muñoz Monasterio.

During the tour you will be guided around the key parts of the bullring, from the main entrance, to the tendidos, the callejón, and various significant gate ways, describing the three protagonists of this magnificent spectacle: the audience, the bullfighter and the bull, in order to explain the Fiesta to a global audience.

The Bullfighting Museum of Madrid is located at the “Patio de Caballos” in an emblematic section of the building and it includes a collection depicting the history of bullfighting in Spain. Among its works you can find engravings from the tauromachy of Goya, bullfighters’ dresses from the twentieth century, a section devoted exclusively to Manolete and a large testimonial sample of the birth of the historic Las Ventas bullring.
