Whether you agree with bullfighting or not, one thing’s for sure, Spain’s bullrings are impressive architectural structures and are definitely worth a visit, even just to look at the outside. Although bullfighting has been outlawed in provinces such as Catalunya, most of the bullrings and their structures still remain.

La Malagueta Plaza de Toros, Malaga

The Plaza de Toros de Malagueta was built in 1874 and was designed by Joaquín Rucoba. It was constructed in the neomudéjar style and unlike most round bullrings, it is actually a hexadecagon, with 16 sides. The plaza can seat 14,000 people and also comprises pens, stables, and areas for the matadors. Don’t miss the Museo Taurino Antonio Ordoñez, located inside. Like many bullrings today, the Malaga bullring is also used for concerts and shows.
