Andalucia - Ronda


Although I'm not a fan of bull fighting I have taken a tour of the bullring at Ronda. This bullring is the oldest in the world. In the leaflet given as you enter it says that its the first purpose built space in the world for fighting bulls. The entrance fee is 6€, which entitles you to enter the the ring itself, the two tier spectator stands and the museum.
Under the bottom tier is where the museum is housed showing the costumes of the matadors.

The first fight that took place here was back in 1785, and is still used today.
