Location: Julio Camba 3, Madrid

The Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas holds 23,798 fans and, at 196 feet in diameter, the arena is one of the largest in the world. Based on a project by José Espelius, who died during its construction, it was completed by Manuel Muñoz Monasterio in 1931 and opened in the same year. Constructed in a Neo-Mudéjar style with hand-painted tiles, it houses an important bullfighting museum which illustrates the history of Las Ventas; it also has a chapel devoted to the Virgen de Guadalupe and to the Virgen de la Paloma, patrons of Mexico and Madrid, respectively.
