Barcelona, a photo a day

Plaza de toros

This is one of the 2 bullfighting arenas I know of in Barcelona.
Bullfighting. Whatever you might think of it, the news here are that many people try to stop it. Some want to stop it entirely, some want it to be just a sport, with no actual killing of the toros, the way they do it in Portugal.

Well, this arena is being transformed into a giant shopping center. Due to the crisis, the works stopped for a year, but they started again. The complex should open early next year.

And once again… Sorry for having so little time to browsing your blogs. Will try to come back as soon as possible.

  1. If you are living in Barcelona, maybe you'll be interested in my blog. There I have a post about the third bullfighting arena “EL TORIN” in Barceloneta.

  5. Personally, I think bull fighting is a rather unsporting “sport,” and should be sent to the trash can.

    It's an interesting building and I can imagine it will make an impressive shopping center.

  6. Hmmm I think when we were in Barcelona in 2006, this place was under construction.Nice to know it's a shopping now! 🙂

  7. J'aime pas trop les centres commerciaux mais j'aime encore moins la corrida. Ils auraient dû garder les arènes pour des spectacles !
