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.

    Margarita was an unbelievably great guide. She made the history behind bull fighting come alive. So much more we understand now that would have escaped us ! (We had even been on a previous tour in another city) this was worth your time and money!! Oh, they use a earphone that I thought I wouldn’t like, but we loved it. Allowed us to hear really well what she was saying!!

    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.
