Plaza Monumental de Barcelona

Local namePlaça de Braus Monumental
LocationBarcelona, Spain

Also known as La Monumental, this imposing building used to serve as a bullring. In fact, it was the last public bullfighting arena operating in Catalonia, until the ban on bullfighting was passed by the Catalan parliament in 2010.

The building was also the only Art-Nouveau bullring in the world, although you can spot Mudéjar and Byzantine influences on the facade. The venue is now home to a small bullfighting museum with matadors' costumes, vintage posters, and other memorabilia. It is also used as an entertainment venue, for example for concerts, theatre performances, or circus spectacles.
