Arenas de Barcelona
Areas de Barcelona, also known as Las Arenas, is a shopping mall located next to Plaça Espanya. It was a former bullfighting ring, built by August Font y Carreras in 1900. It was a magnetic place for all bullfighting lovers and could room 16000 fans inside.
The last bullfight was held on 19th of June, 1977. For a long time the building had stood empty. In 2011, its doors were opened to be refurbished. The arena has raised one level and has a new rooftop cupola with a public viewing terrace, ideal for an outstanding view of city. The dome of cupola has placed a concert and theatre hall that is now used for different kinds of events.
