We saw six bulls go through the ritual pageantry, bravery, stupidity, and death back in 1964. Catalonia has now outlawed bull fighting, but they saved the exterior of this Moorish style building by turning it into a shopping mall. There are at least half a dozen high end restaurant on the top floor that has a great view of the entire city.
This is looking toward Fort Magica de Montjuic from the top of the Arena.
This is the new shopping mall built inside the bull ring. Walking out across that large circular floor I half expected 1,200 pound of angry muscle with sharp horns to come charging out shorting and pawing dust, but all I heard was the rustle of shoppers plastic bags. Times do change in 52 years.
