Las Ventas a beautifull building from the 20th century.
Madrid Las Ventas bullring is the biggest in Spain and the 3rd in the world (after Mexico and Venezuela). I was pretty impress the first time I visited it, I didn’t thought it was that big. Even if you don’t like bullfighting, the building is wonderful and the arenas worth to been seen.
