La Monumental Barcelona

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.

I also have a poster that seems to have come out of a newspaper from Barcelona. The date posted is August 15 and at the bottom of the newspaper poster is Lamonograf providencia, 60 Barcelona (12) MOD. 123 dated in 1961.

  2. Posters - Plaza Toros Monumental (19 Apr 2015 - 10:14)

    I have 2 advertising posters relating to the bull fights at the Plaza. They have the names of these men on one. Pedro Martinez Pedres, Diego Puerta El Cordobes and Manual Benitez. Both posters have the picture of a bull fighter and a bull and they have the dates 21/24 Sept but no year. There are also the names of IFiestas De La Merced. FI Cordobes and Rafael Ortega.
    I am very interested to find out what dates these were issued and where they come from. I would like to know more about the posters and the men on them. There is a signature on both but they are hard to read.
    Anyone out there that can help please
