Cheap to expensive depending on where you sit. If you sit far away and in the sun (Andanada 8) then it's 18 Euros. Check the tourist newspaper publication for the dates when there are bullfights. I got lucky and happened to be there on the day when one of the two bullfights for the month was happening. Lots of people hate the idea because of the animal cruelty. Don't get me wrong - I'm an animal lover. But seeing a live bullfight is a unique cultural experience that takes place in very few places in the world. I've seen lots of crazy things happen in nature (i.e. a bear kill a yearling moose on a lake and then drag it into the woods) but seeing how the bulls don't "go gently into that good night" is something that can only be experienced first hand. That being said...I only stayed for half of the event and then walked through the city zoo to see some live animals - albeit caged ones.

The bullfights are every sunday and it will end in september this year. I will not be in Barcelona on a sunday unfortunately, although it will prevent me from the dilemma, should I go for the experience, or not go because of the principle...

Do you know if you're allowed to bring a photo or videocamera and take pictures of/film the bullfighting?

Tnx, shari
