The Glorieta bull ring in Salamanca was built in 1892 and officially opened on September 11th, 1893. It's classical in style, and has three levels, made of stone, wrought-iron and brick. The ring is 54 meters in diameter, and there's seating for almost 11000 spectators. There are two main times of year for seeing a good bullfight in Salamanca: June 12th for the feast of San Juan de Sahagun, with the traditional Las Hermanitas de los Pobres bullfight (held since 1947 with a view to raising funds for that institution), and September 12th to 21st (except on Sept 20th) during Salamanca's big fiesta.
