Historic and beautiful

Going with my girlfriend to the city of Bejar went to the oldest bullring in Spain or at least that's what it says, the most amazing of the square is the only thing new is the woods but the seats are as were in the eighteenth century and like where they put the authorities and others who believe that tries to look like a bullring in the middle of the eighteenth century. There is a museum inside which costs 1.5 € for him but for lack of time but sure next time I'll go inside and see How HISTORY: The Plaza de Toros "The Chestnut" is considered the oldest in Spain. There is documentary evidence of the first festival held in 1667 on a provisional place made of wood. Due to the success of these early celebrations Duke Don Juan Manuel II would allow the construction of a stable building for the bullfights. Built for the first time in the late seventeenth century with a unique square, was in 1707 when it replaced the original wooden square on the other stone, changing the original octagonal square shape otherwise. In fact by the time documentation is known about the completion of work in about September 1711. It acted the most relevant figures of bullfighting in the last three centuries. Form does not remain unchanged, in fact in the nineteenth century would round the arena, because initially it was rectangular, retaining some remains of the original grandstand. Has subsequently been re-openings different paths restorations in 1962 and 1996. The square has also been used as a theater.

Historico y bonito

Yendo con mi novia a la ciudad de Bejar nos fuimos a la plaza de toros mas vieja de España o al menos eso es lo que dice, lo mas asombroso de la plaza es que lo unico nuevo son las maderas pero que los asientos son como eran en el siglo XVIII y lo mismo que donde se ponian las autoridades y demas que creo que intenta parecerse a una plaza de toros del XVIII en pleno siglo XXI.
Hay un museo dentro que cuesta por verlo 1.5€ pero que por falta de tiempo pero a la proxima vez seguro que ire dentro a ver como es.

Bullring

The square is built on the site of "The chestnut" just 2 km from the city, Bejar, is considered the oldest bullring in Spain, dating from 1711. After the modernization of the nineteenth century have passed since the ring round initially had a rectangular structure, today we have some remains of its first form in the eastern part of the bleachers. In the restoration remained the two original lines carved directly into the stone, as well as having provided the square of an alley. Currently the building that houses the presidential box, the box office, nursing and boxes is the bullfighting museum installed in 1998 in which we can observe objects related to the bullfighters and festivals held here. It is curious worth a little visit.

Plaza de toros

La plaza está construida en el paraje de "El castañar" a tan solo 2 Km. De la ciudad, de bejar, está considerada como la plaza de toros más antigua de España,data de 1711.
Después de su reforma del siglo XIX ha pasado a tener el ruedo redondo ya que en un primer momento tenía una estructura rectangular, hoy en día nos queda algunos restos de su primera forma en la parte este del graderío.
En la restauración se mantuvieron los dos tendidos originales labrados directamente en la piedra, además de haber dotado a la plaza de un callejón.
Actualmente el edificio que alberga el palco presidencial, las taquillas, enfermería y palcos se encuentra el museo taurino instalado en 1998 en el cual podremos observar objetos relacionados con los toreros y las fiestas aquí celebradas.
Es curiosa merece la pena una pequeña visita.
