Discover The arenas de la Maestranza de la plaza de toros Spain

Seville's corridas are of international renown and are held in the arenas de la Maestranza de la plaza de toros, which are among the oldest (18th century) and most prestigious in Spain. Prices vary depending on the situation, in the shade (sombra) or in the sun (sol). The corrida season starts with the April holidays and ends at the end of September. They are generally held on Sundays and Bank Holidays, in the late afternoon. The arenas can accommodate up to 17,000 enthusiasts. Located in the heart of the Plaza de Toros, Seville's arena, the museum displays bull fighting props used over the centuries. You can admire the head of the mother of the bull that put a brutal end to Manolete's career in 1947, the cape painted by Picasso, a drawing by Cocteau and some sculptures by Benlliure.
