Inaugurated in 1914, La Monumental was Catalunya’s last bullfighting arena in operation. Thankfully bullfighting was banned in Catalunya years ago, and while Spain’s courts have overturned the ban we doubt we’ll see the barbaric “sport” practiced here again.
Today the emblematic space houses a bullfighting museum and also plays host to events such as Monumental Club, a festival weekend of live music and DJs accompanied by an array of food trucks and stalls selling independent fashion, home décor and design objects. There’ll be kids activities too from 12:30pm to 4:30pm.
