Overview

Situated in a small street next to the bullfighting ring, Museo Taurino spans three centuries of bullfighting history in Valencia. There are bullfighting instruments from the 18th century, costumes, engravings, and posters announcing bullfights from the 19th century. Other noteworthy features include keepsakes of the famous matador, El Espartero, a portrait of Juan Belmonte done by Zuloaga, Manuel Granero's cape, and a bronze bull by Mariano Benlliure. There are also 10 engravings of the first edition of Francisco Goya's Tauromaquia, along with numerous bull heads, trophies, photographs and paintings. The bullfighting museum is definitely a recommended visit before going next door to take in a bullfight. Check website for more details.
