Recommendation by Lemi
A long way north from Seville, Madrid also celebrates bullfighting season from March to October at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. Its distinct face welcomes avid supporters with its brick-colored arches and elegant tile work. Inside, 23,798 seats hum with the excitement of anticipating spectators. Join the crowd and find your spot! Plop down near the sand pit to feel the full heat of the performance, or slink up to the steep seats under the shaded colonnades. Ticket prices vary depending on whether you’re under the sun (cheaper) or in the shadows (pricier). Either way, you’ll be in full view of the action! Aficionados favor Las Ventas since the ring sees many emerging talents. Las Ventas is rooted firmly in tradition, but keeps its eye toward the future, by housing a Bullfighting School that trains on the grounds.
