bullfight - sombra o sol

by nielsendinwoodie

Hi, you lucky Madrid people -

My carniverous girlfriend and I are coming from London specifically to see a bullfight at Las Ventas on 21 Sept. Ok, it's a novillada, but this is our only date.

What's the real deal at this time of year on sombra or sol - or indeed sombra/sol - tickets? We want to be close to the action. Best rows?

Please reveal the truth, afficionadas.

Also, is Hostal San Lorenzo known to any of you. Seemed good on the website.

Thanks and thanks.

I am afraid as I am not much a fan of them, I do nto knwo the best palces to see it, but the diference between sombra and sol (shadow and sun), is that shadow are more expensive as you will not ahve the sun over you while watching it.

As much expensive is the entrance, as close you get to the arena.

Sorry I do not know about the hostal too, check under accomodations tips on Madrid, maybe someone has stayed there.


Re: bullfight - sombra o sol


Most of the corrida (usually) develops close to sombra so even in a sunless day sombra tickets is what you want in any bullring.

The best seats are in sombra. In Las Ventas, the best tendidos are 9 and 10. Make sure you get a Tendido Bajo de Sombra 9 o 10 and lowest posible row if you want to be "close to the action."
Las Ventas website is

I do not think the cartel for that evening is out yet but I am pretty sure will be a "bullfight" (4 year old bulls) instead of a "novillada" (3-4 years old).

You will be able to get tickets at the "taquilla" (box office) that day but, if you pay an extra 20%, I have found that the "reventa oficial" around Plaza Santa Ana (towards Sol) and outside the bullring has better tickets. The oficial prices are in the website so you have an idea.

If you are willing to pay and are that interested you can probably get a "barrera" (1st row) by going to the Reina Victoria hotel in the Plaza Santa Ana (where the bullfighters and their managers stay) or in the restaurant Vin~a P in the same plaza.

If you have any questions please ask.
