The Basics

The Seville Bullring remains a site of historical and cultural importance in the southern city. If you prefer not to watch the spectacle, opt instead for a visit to the museum, including the chapel where matadors pray and the infirmary where they’re patched up. The bullring is included as a stop on many guided walking or bike tours (regular and electric ones), along with other points of interest such as Alcazar, Santa Cruz Quarter, Plaza de España, and Seville Cathedral.
