Stierenarena Málaga – Plaza de Toros La Malagueta

De stierenarena van Málaga, de Plaza de Toros, is ontworpen door de architect Joaquín Rucoba en is gebouwd in 1874. Twee jaar later was de bouw voltooid, met ruimte voor ongeveer 14.000 toeschouwers. Het heeft de naam La Malagueta gekregen, omdat het in de wijk Malagueta ligt en vlakbij het strand van Malagueta is.

De stierenarena bestaat uit een arena, vier kralen, stallen, een manege, kleedkamers voor de matadors en ook een ziekenboeg. Het geheel is gebouwd in een Neo-Mudéjarstijl, een stijl die in Spanje is ontstaan uit de Iberische architectuur (de Mudéjar) en sterk beïnvloed was door de Moren in de twaalfde t/m de zestiende eeuw.
