Situated in the Guindalera quarter of the district of Salamanca, Las ventas was built in 1927 and replaced the old Alcala Bull Ring.
It is one of the most famous Bull Rings in the world, and is regarded as the home of Bullfighting in Spain. It also hosts often other events such as concerts and sports (Tennis, Beach Volley,...)

The ring has a seating capacity of 25,000 and was designed by the architect José Espeliú in the Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish) style with ceramic incrustations. The seats are situated in ten "tendidos". The price of the seats depends upon how close they are to the arena and whether they are in the sun or the shade (the latter being more expensive).

The bullfighting season starts in March and ends in December; bullfights are held every day during the San Isidro Fiesta, and every Sunday or holiday during the season. Bullfights start at 6 or 7pm and last for two to three hours.

Whether you like bullfighting or not, the experience is pretty strong and if you're not fully against, it's a very interesting "experience" to live, ideally accompanied by a spanyard who will explain to you the rules;
