Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos, Colonia del Sacramento

2.6
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Colonia del Sacramento
Admire Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos from the outside and imagine what the bullring must have looked like in its heyday. Once used for the controversial sport of bullfighting, the building's crumbled remains reflect sadly on the fate that has befallen it. The stadium was only used for two years, between 1910 and 1912, then left to decay for more than a century. You can't enter the bullring, so it's only worth visiting if you are a fan of abandoned structures and have time to make the hour-long walk from the city center. Make Plaza de toros Real de San Carlos a centerpiece of your Colonia del Sacramento vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Colonia del Sacramento online visit planner .

  • We went to see the remodeling project. It comes with everything I think. I hope that's the beautiful Cologne, it'll take everything.

  • Personally, I feel like it offers nothing but a visit on the outside. The square is fenced. There's not much to see, 10 minutes is more than enough.

  • There really isn't anything to do other than walk around the outside from behind the fence and try to see the inside. Other posters have commented that they will be repairing it so that people can go inside. At that point, I think it would be great to see.
  • Excelent ambientation and great experience there
