Fortunately, it is illegal here in Catalunya. Don't think the rest of Spain will follow. Anyway, fabulous building, never been inside, it was closed when I was an alfacinha.
Pity about the bullfights. I always found the building interesting, although I never went inside.
What an amazing building. It's so wonderful that it has been preserved and turned into an entertainment complex.
What an impressive arena. So much more so than our bland piles of steel and concrete! But why should bullfighting be banned when killing humans seems to be the main project for people all over the world? Just asking. :)
A super spectacular place! Is this architecture considered Moorish?
Much better use for this beautiful building now JM, some traditions will never die I guess.
@Kathy: Yes, it's definitely Moorish inspired.
Beautiful arena and that's great that it is being used for other events as well as bull fighting. But I think it will be hard to completely stop the bull fighting, it's been such a part of the culture of Spain, Portugal and Mexico for so long. Terrific capture as always, JM!
Grand looking building. Sad about bullfighting though. MB
What a gorgeous building! Bullfighting? Big shame, true.
beautiful architecture and pic ! :)
Really can get the fun of this and I am not an animal-right activist. I like this kind of architecture and the idea of a multi-event arena is much more interesting!
Love the building!
Fabulous building and I love how you composed it, drawing the eye towards it.
Ha! No bull?
What an amazing structure.
First I thought of Russian church style, when I saw the "bulbs" on the roof.It looks HUGE!Have a nice weekend!
Não tive oportunidade de ir especificamente a este lugar. Passei por ele, mas não o observei por muito tempo. Lamentável. Uma belíssima arquitetura de fato.
The Muslim elements in this building are intriguing. Love the train station too.
A arquitetura é bem bonita!Léia
