Bullfighting in Seville

Although bullfights in Seville during the Feria de Abril are very popular it’s usually possible to buy tickets either at the taquilla (bullring ticket office) or from one of the ticket outlets on c/Adriano next to the Real Maestranza bullring. Otherwise you’ll find numerous ticket touts offering to sell tickets outside the arena just before the bullfight commences.

Buying tickets at the Maestranza bullring can prove tricky unless you speak Spanish so take a good look at the official bullfight poster on the walls of the bullring next to the ticket office so that you know what tickets you want in advance. Basically you have to decide between sol (sun), sombra (shade) and sol y sombra (sun & shade) where the ones in the sun are the cheapest.

In the Seville bullring a row of seats is called a “tendido”. In terms of sun and shade you will find the following: Tendidos 1 to 7 are in the shade; Tendidos 6 &9 are in the sun & shade; Tendidos 8, 10, 11 & 12 are in the sun.

If you wish to purchase bullfight tickets in advance for the Feria de Abril you can attempt to do so (in Spanish) via the website of the the Real Maestranza in Seville. Normally this option isn’t available before the first week of April.

There’s also a small ticket agency called La Teatral located at c\Velazquez nº12 in the city centre.
