Every year there is usually a period of bullfighting festivities where the most important figures come together. In addition to the April Fair in September there are also events such as the Feria de San Miguel and during the months of May and June. If you visit Seville and want to know more from bullfights, check if there is any festivity in the province.

It is known that in 1707 there was a rectangular bullring in Seville. This bullring, in very poor condition, was replaced by a circular one in 1733. A new bullring was later ordered, construction of which began in 1754 and was not finished until well into the 19th century; the lack of budget or the presence of houses only delayed the work. The bullring is in the late Baroque style, and inside the building you will find a bullfighting museum inaugurated in 1989 and the bullfighters' chapel.

The Prince's Box is reserved for the royal family. Among the illustrious personalities who have attended this bullring are Princess Sissi of Austria in 1861, the film director Orson Wells during the 20th century and Prince Juan Carlos Borbón with Sofía of Greece, during the inauguration of the Fair in 1969.

Some films have also been shot here, such as Night and Day in 2009 with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz or Red Alert in 2021.
