Bullfighting in Madrid!

Madrid is known for it's very famous bullring - The Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas.
It's located in Ventas, you can take the Metro there and as soon as you step out of the station, you can see it.

It is a traditional activity and that's really all I can say - I couldn't stay for more than one round, even with almost closed eyes.

For animal lovers, I don't suggest to sit through it, maybe just see the ring, grab a few seats, soak in the atmosphere, wonder what the excitement is all about and then leave before it actually starts (it's not the prettiest sight).

The outside structure

Inside the ring!

The crowds gathered - wondered if they knew what was to be expected!

& that was the start...

We were early so thought of grabbing a coffee & this was more than a year ago..
