If you decide to go, expect a lot of pageantry. It’s not just about the fight; there’s a whole ritual to it, from the way the matadors dress to the music and the crowd’s reactions. But be warned, it’s not for everyone. The sport is controversial because of animal welfare concerns. If you’re okay with that, it’s an experience that’s deeply rooted in Seville’s culture.

Where is the Bullfighting in Seville Held?

The epicentre of bullfighting in Seville is the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería. This magnificent 18th century bullring located in the historic centre can seat up to 12,000 spectators.

When is Bullfighting Season?

In Seville, the temporada taurina featuring weekly bullfights occurs during the warmer months from March to October generally on Sundays around 6 or 7 pm.

The season highlights are Semana Santa (Holy Week) in spring and the iconic Feria de Abril in late April, when the best fights are scheduled.

December to February has sporadic off-season fights that are less crowded but feature fewer star bullfighters.

Purchasing Bullfight Tickets

Tickets can be purchased:

  • Online – Tickets can be purchased through StubHub
  • At the bullring – The ticket office opens a few hours before events for same day sales if not sold out.
  • Hotels – Many hotels, especially higher end ones, can book tickets or tour packages including transport.
  • Tour Agencies – Companies like GoTours offer packages with transport, guide, and reserved seating. Useful for visitors.

Book early for highly anticipated spring fights. Tickets for Feria de Abril sell out months in advance.

Choosing Seats for the Seville Bull Fight

The Plaza de Toros has open bleacher seating divided into sections (gradas) and covered booth areas (tendidos). VIPs sit in the lower booths or private balcony boxes.

One of the key factors when choosing a seat (and has a significant impact on the price) is whether the seat is more aligned towards the sun (sol) or the shade (sombra).

The sol seats are cheaper as they can potentially obstruct your view as the sun shines in your eyes.

The shade seats are more expensive as they offer you uninterrupted views of the performance.

Seats in the Barerra area are often considered the best, with the closest views of the bullfight.

Tickets gradually get cheaper the further back you go, with the cheapest seats in the Andanada. However it’s worth noting that all seats in the plaza offer good views of the action, so it is hard to go wrong.

For a price vs quality point of view, I would recommend seats in the Tendino area.

The Plaza de Toros has a capacity of just over 12,000 people. The bull fights attract visitors from all over Spain, and tickets get sold fast so it’s best to book as far in advance as possible if you’re looking for a particular seat.

Dressing for the Bullfight

People in Seville dress smartly for bullfights, especially during the festival periods of April Fair and Holy Week celebrations. While it is not strictly mandatory, recommended attire is:

Men – Button up shirts and nice pants or dark jeans. Jackets optional. Avoid shorts, flip flops or sneakers.

Women – Sundresses, nice blouses with skirts or pants. Dressy casual.

Bring shades and a fan for sun/heat, especially if you are in the ‘Sol’ section of the stadium. Also, if you do book VIP seats or boxes, this tends to be significantly more dressier.
