Plaza De Toros
Vacation Travel Guide

Watch a bullfight and pick up insights into the history and importance of bullfighting to Roquetas de Mar when you visit its magnificent bullring.

The Plaza de Toros is a striking bullring that hosts bullfights and music concerts. The circular arena has a capacity for almost 8,000 spectators and has witnessed some of Spain’s most illustrious matadors in action. Even if bullfighting is not for you, stop by the stadium to explore its free museum. It covers the history of the sport in the area and its cultural importance.

The Bullfighting Museum is spread across five rooms all on the same level. Give yourself at least 30 minutes to explore the displays and presentations. In the reception room see paintings and sculptures inspired by bullfighting and watch the film on the large audiovisual screen. It highlights attractions in Roquetas de Mar as well as covering the world of bullfighting.

Enter the second room where exhibits and a touch-screen presentation cover the history of the bullring and what bullfighting means to the coastal town. Browse the collection of promotional material advertising bullfights from previous years.

In the next room study matador costumes that have been worn by some of the country's most well-known bullfighters such as El Juli, Finito de Córdoba and Jesús de Almería. All three took part in the venue’s first bullfights when it was inaugurated in 2002. A touch-screen presentation provides information on the history of each object in this room.

Go into the forth room for insights into the country’s bullfighting history. There are bullfighting photographs by notable Spanish photographers, displays of bulls’ heads and a display case of lances that have been used in bullfights. The museum's last room is used for conferences, screenings and press events.

The Plaza de Toros is located a short walk from the town’s bus station. Alternatively, drive and use the free parking facilities. Guided tours of the bullring are available but these are only conducted in Spanish. The museum is open daily and admission is free. To find out what’s going on at the plaza consult its official website.

Overall good stay

"We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of October 2018. The hotel was still very busy and the weather was still hot. I wouldn’t consider the hotel a 4* star, more like a 3*, but we enjoyed it.
