Overview

Construction was initiated by the Zaragozan patron Ramón Pignatelli and the ring was built in the 18th century. It is known as La Misericordia (mercy) because with the money collected, the Casa de Misericordia (orphanage) was maintained; that building now headquarters the Government of Aragón. The bullring can hold up to 14,000 people and has a retractable roof in case it rains. The main bull-fighting season in the city is the week of the 12th in October which puts an end to the season nationally.
