  Me in the Plaza de Toros
by msocolin

The Plaza de Toros was built in 1910 and saw only 8 bullfights before bullfighting was prohibited in 1912. It was built in a moorish style and could hold 8000 people, about the whole population of Colonia at that time. After bullfighting was prohibited, the ring was abandoned and today we can only see its remains from the outside.

Address: Real de San Carlos
Directions: Real de San Carlos, near the Sheraton Hotel.
