The Plaza de Toros ("bullring") in Ronda, Málaga is one of the oldest operational bullrings in Spain. The arena has a diameter of , surrounded by a passage formed by two rings of stone.

History

The most important of them was Pedro Romero (1754-1839), a key figure in the history of bullfighting who slew more than 5,600 bulls. The Romero and Ordóñez families were known for their great bullfights in the Plaza, and a statue of Cayetano Ordóñez stands outside one of the entrances to the bullring.this building can hold almost 1,250 spectators at any given time.
