Plaza de Toros 'Las Arenas'

In 1900 Las Arenas opened its doors as a bullfighting arena right on the Plaça d´Espanya. The last bullfight in this arena was held in 1977 and bullfighting was completely banned in Catalonia in 2012. Because of the heritage status of the façade, it was not allowed to be torn down. Renovation started in 2003 and shopping centre 'Las Arenas' opened its doors in 2011.
