Fodor's Expert Review Plaza de Toros Santamaría
Bogotá's bullring was designed by Rogelio Salmona in a traditional Andalusian style. No bullfights have taken place here since 2012, due to efforts by animal rights activists and a decree by Bogotá's mayor. However, in early 2015, the courts did find in favor of continuing the fights, calling them displays of artistic expression. As of publication, fights have yet to resume due to renovations. Meanwhile, the stadium plays host to a range of events such as musical concerts and even tennis matches.
