The Bull Ring

Img 1: THE BULL RING

Cylindrical in shape, the bull ring has four rows of arches and is styled on such monuments as the amphitheatre in Nimes or the Coliseum in Rome. The columns supporting the galleries are made of cast-iron and are open to the air which at the time of its building was an important architectural and artistic novelty. Built to hold 16,800 people, the Valencia bull ring has applauded the exploits of all the leading bull-fighters of every age, who have known how to arouse the passions and the enthusiasm of the public. In an area nearby is the Bull-fighters Museum, which exhibits the complete history of the ring.
