This was a must see for me in Ronda because it is the home of bullfighting.

However we cannot erase history so with this attitude I decided to visit Plaza...More

We are not supporters of bull-fighting, we consider it a cruel form of entertainment.

Although Seville bullring is possibly the top bullring in Spain, the one at Ronda from 1785 is the oldest and one of the most important.
Pedro Romero who founded the classic Ronda style of bullfighting is considered to be the father of modern bullfighting.

No. The bullring in Ronda is the most important Plaza de Toros in Spain and is only used for bullfights one weekend per year, during the town's annual fiesta. The Goyesca Corrida(bullfight) is held on the Saturday (the penultimate day) if Ronda's fiesta. The fiesta takes place in the first week of September, normally. I think the Goyesca Saturday this year is on the 9th of September. The Goyesca attracts the world's best toreros.
On the Friday, a bullfight featuring young toreros (bullfighters) is held. These toreros are normally in their late teens, early 20's and are just a year or so shy of being qualified, having started training for the corrida at the age of 8 or 9.
