However, I found this experience interesting, even though I am not in favor of bullfighting, but I wanted to understand what revolves around this culture. Well and simply organised, audio guide in Italian with a well-explained route. I found it interesting.

The bullring tour with audio guide was very interesting. I learned a lot of new facts about that issue. Thank to the audio guide you can make the tour on your own speed. Value for the money was very good. Would recommend this experience

Very nice experience to have in the sense of the vibrations of the bullfight shows

We were not expecting a self guided tour. It was a great experience. Thank you.
