Las Ventas is the name of the Madrid´s bullring, placed in the city center, close to Ventas Metro Station.
“La Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas” was built in 1929 and was inaugurated in 1931. It is the most important bullring in the World, a temple for real ‘aficionados’ who know how to appreciate a good bullfight, who relate to the fierceness within the ‘matador’ and who wait in anticipation for the bullfight to progress according to tradition
From 1913 to 1920, the national celebaration gained such an important status that, in Madrid, the bullring situated in Carretera de Aragon was not big enough. It was Jose Gomez “Joselito” who declared that a new monumental bullring had to be built, to open this piece of heritage and culture to the whole city of Madrid. His friend and architect Jose Espeliu began work the project.
