La Malagueta has hosted bullfights since 1876, just about the time when the sport’s rules were established in Andalusia. Spanish-style bullfighting is called corrida de toros. Hence, Málaga’s ring is also referred to as Plaza de Toros la Malagueta. The circular stadium is 170 feet in diameter and has a seating capacity for 9,000 spectators. The season is April through September. But you can visit the Antonio Ordóñez Bullfighting Museum during weekdays all year. Although bullfighting has become increasingly controversial and is band in most countries, it remains popular in various regions of Spain.
