Default No more bullfights in Alcudia

The oldest arena in Mallorca

Quote:
The bullring in Alcudia will no longer host bullfights. The town hall intends to change the use of the oldest arena in Mallorca to cultural and social purposes. The mayor, BÓrbara Rebassa, has confirmed that this will be the case, now that the concession for managing the arena has expired.

Built in 1892 in the Sant Ferran bastion of the Renaissance wall, which in turn dates from the 17th century, the bullring is the oldest arena on the island, and Alcudia has been one of the island's main bullfighting locations.

The final project has yet to be fully defined, but "the idea is to turn it into a centre of activities for associations and cultural groups and, if this is possible, to set up rehearsal rooms for musicians". "That it will no longer be a bullring is something that we are clear about, we will make a change to sociocultural use. Although there are those who defend bullfights as a cultural asset and the law obliges bullfighting use to continue, the fact is that the arena does not comply with the regulations."

We have enjoyed seeing Flamallorca Flamenco show at this venue a few times. Fabulous show - especially on a warm summer evening

Not sure how many people know that there used to be a Bull Ring in the Port near where the Petrol Garage now is. The is a photo on the wall in Can Ferra.

Yes, this has been mentioned a few times in the past on the forum. Type `Bull ring` into the search facility .

We used to love them too. I think they may have gone bust during lockdown, as they sent out a desperate plea for funding last year.

Yes we donated at the time as we were still hoping to get over and get to a show, but sadly it never happened.
