Some like it. Some don’t. It is a part of the culture. But don’t bring your kids.
There is a bullring close to center of Marbella city and close to the big shopping center La Canada. Every summer season on Sundays there is a bullfighting in the city. You notice posters all over Marbella promoting the event – Plaza del toros

  • The Marbella Bullring holds 9,500 spectators. It has eight access gates, but the parking area is quite small. Far from the historic district, it can be accessed from road N-340.
  • In the summer, there are ‘novilladas’ on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be bought at the box office or the stand on Paseo de la Alameda (average price: €30).
  • In the first half of June, Marbella celebrates its major fiesta: St Bernabé’s Festival. The festival’s highlight is on 11 June, when they commemorate the Reconquista of the city. From noon to 7:00 p.m., the town’s streets get filled with people dancing and enjoying themselves. During the festival, there are bullfights every day at 7:00 p.m.
  • Can be accessed from Autovía del Mediterráneo (A-7; former N-340) or Autopista de la Costa del Sol (AP-7). Once there, drive along Avenida del Duque de Lerma and then Avenida de la Reina Victoria, leading to the bullring (Google: http://bit.ly/HG0thd)
