La Monumental Barcelona

The Monumental Bullring of Barcelona known as the “Plaza de Toros Monumental de Barcelona” or more shortly “ la Monumental” was inaugurated in 1914 with the first bullfights in this place.
La Monumental, located at a confluence of Gran Via and Marina, gives also its name to a station of the Barcelona Metro network.
The Monumental is a building made of brick, its style is a mixture of Mudéjar (Moors) and Byzantine. The Monumental is often scene of musical events and circus spectacles.

 

 

The monumental shelters “The Bullfighting Museum of Barcelona”. It is one of the most interesting museums related to this activity. It consists of two large rooms and exhibits the branding-irons and emblems of famous stock farms, the heads of famous bulls, a collection of posters from the past, old tickets, the suits of famous bullfighters and rejoneadores (mounted bullfighters), photographs, documents, a library and other objects relating to bullfighting in general, worth seeing.
