An exterior view of the Puerta del Principe, meaning the Prince's Gate, at the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, also called La Real Maestranza, the Bullring situated in the El Arenal District in the gorgeous City of Seville, Andalusia, Spain.

The Puerta del Principe, which means the Prince's Gate in Spanish, is one of the entrances to the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, which is a very famous bullring in the El Arenal District in Seville, Andalusia, Spain.

Bullfighting is not as popular in Spain and around the world as it once was; many younger Spanish people do not support the 'sport' at all, but that does not diminish the extravagance and important place in history that this bullring holds.

The building was started in 1762, and is a fantastic example of Baroque architecture. The main entrance Puerta del Principe, the Prince's Gates, are originally from a convent and date back from the 16th century. They were made by Pedro Roldan. ... continue below the picture...

Tourists today can visit the building to see a shining example of Spanish Baroque architecture but bullfights still take place here. Many have said that this is the best place to experience a bullfight, because although the arena holds 14,000 people, the acoustics are so good that every movement can be heard and seen clearly from wherever you are sitting.

Off to the side tourists can also visit a small chapel, where bullfighters pray before they enter the ring.
