The Jerez bullring

The Jerez bullring is located in Jerez de la Frontera, in the Andalusian province of Cadiz, where bullfighting is of great importance.

One of the oldest and most important bullrings in Andalusia, the bullring of Jerez de la Frontera hosts every year the Jerez Horse Fair in May, declared of International Tourist Interest, which, along with Easter, is one of the largest and most important fairs in the city.

With a great tradition, the bullring of Jerez hangs every year the “no tickets” sign for the prestigious Horse Fair, hence the importance of buying tickets in advance if you want to attend.

THE LOVE FOR THE ANDALUSIAN HORSE IS SUCH THAT THE "CORRIDAS DE REJONEO" WERE INVENTED IN THIS BULLRING. On the 5th of May 1967, the first bullfighting spectacle with horses took place

History of the Jerez de la Frontera Bullring

The bullring of Jerez was built in the early nineteenth century, specifically in 1839, which makes it one of the most historic bullrings in Spain.

The bullring was inaugurated on June 7, 1840 and, 20 years later, in 1860, it suffered a fire that forced its reconstruction by the architect José Estévez y López, being reopened in 1872. But, years later, in 1891, it caught fire again, although in a milder form, being inaugurated again in 1894 by the mayor of the city, Toribio Revilla San Millán, with a poster formed by the right-handed Guerrita and Bonarillo, who fought bulls of the Marqués de Villamarta.

Nowadays, the bullring has a capacity of 9,500 people to see bullfights in Jerez, being a much more consistent bullring, characterized by an eclectic style with regional features.

It should also be noted that the façade of the bullring is decorated with attached tiles that pay tribute to the bulls pardoned throughout the history of the bullring, as well as that inside the bullring there are three tribute plaques; one to Rafael de Paula, another one remembering the alternative of Luis Parra Jerezano and a third one referring to the history of José Luis Galloso.
