Santamaría Bullring

Santamaría Bullring (Plaza de Toros de Santamaría, in original Spanish) is a bullring in Bogotá, Colombia, and it is currently used for bullfighting, although it has also been used for concerts and other cultural activities.

The stadium holds 14,500 people and was built in 1931. This bullring is more commonly known as the Plaza de Toros Santamaría. Outside this bullring there is a statue honoring Pepe Cáceres, the famous Colombian torero. In 2012 the mayor of Bogotá, Gustavo Petro, announced entering into dialogue with the capital community to ban the tradition of bullfighting in the city and give the Santamaría Bullring another use, in addition to denying resources of public enterprises for such parties. Currently it is used for cultural events.

Great place to watch a bullfight while the season is going on. If you're lucky, maybe a group of drunk men nearby will share their rum with you.

Ya pronto vuelve la tauromaquia a Bogotá. Muy merecido por un pueblo de alta tradición taurina y para el comercio que se beneficia de sus actividades.

Este es uno de los escenarios ¨culturales¨ más importante de Bogotá, en el cual prefiero que se aproveche con conciertos y teatro.
