Full description
Waste no time waiting in line with a skip-the-line ticket to the bullring in Seville— the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza. Take an included 1-hour guided tour to get the most out of your visit, and enjoy the use of an included headset so you don't miss a moment of your guide's commentary.

During the activity, visit the Bullfight Museum, which is divided into 4 different parts. Discover the aim of bullfighting and the history of it. Learn about the different parts of a bullfight and all the people who have a share in it. Take a look at original bullfighter costumes, capes, and more.

Next, head to the horses' courtyard and admire the chapel where bullfighters pray before the fight. Stay for a few minutes in front of the main gate, hear the sound of the opening wood door, then enter the arena like a bullfighter.

From the middle of the arena, contemplate the tendidos (front rows), look at the bull pens (toriles), and appreciate the most important gate in the bullring: the Prince's Gate. If the matador crosses it, he gets a wonderful reception.

Fantastic tour with really friendly and knowledgeable tour guide called Marga. She was passionate and enthusiastic. Great sense of humour. The Bull Ring itself was a beautiful sight and well worth a visit. We weren’t sure we would like it but we are now more educated and Marga has made us see this is s a great Spanish Cultural Event. Would highly recommend this tour. You gain more by listening to a tour guide rather than a plain audio tour. Go try it for yourself.
