Malaga city Bullring

Known as the Malagueta Bullring, it was built at the end of the 19th century. The construction is a work of art and has been considered an Asset of Cultural Interest.

The Málaga Bullring is considered a first class bullring, which is why the most important bullfighters meet every year within its walls. The building is used for more than just bullfighting events; from concerts to motor shows. There is also a permanent bullfighting museum which was inaugurated in 1999 and can be accessed from inside.

The Malaga Bullring holds seasonal shows, so if you want to attend one you will have to plan your visit around one of the following dates:

  • Bullfighting Fair of Malaga: It coincides with the August Fair in Malaga and there can be from 6 to 8 bullfighting events.
  • Easter Fair: During Easter in Malaga there are two other important bullfighting events. In one of the events the bullfighters wear costumes referring to the Malaga artist Picasso.

  • Bullfight of the Victory: On September 8th the last bullfight of the year takes place in honour of the Virgin of the Victory.

Goyesca bullfighting in Ronda

In the fortnight of September, there are bullfights in Ronda, on whose posters every bullfighter dreams of appearing, as it is held for the brightest stars of the bullfighting planet. The Ronda style of bullfighting in the "goyesca" could be described as the classic pure - well rounded, while the Sevillian school would be called "plateresca".

The operatic scenography of this unique bullfight, in which the bullfighters are dressed as in Goya's engravings (18th century), the careful choice of the bullfighters for the poster and the strain of the bulls, the pilgrimage of fans from all over Spain and the attention of the bullfighting season. Poetic, literary and emblematic, this bullfight cannot be compared to any other bullfight held in Spanish bullrings.
