The Plaza de Toros Monumental is located at Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 749, in Barcelona, Spain. This was one of the bullrings of Barcelona and was inaugurated in 1913 as the Plaza de El Sport. Almost immediately after opening, it was remodeled and expanded to reopen in 1916 as Plaza De Toros Monumental De Barcelona, or “La Monumental”.

The expansion, designed by Ignasi Mas i Morelli and Domenec Sugranes i Gras, was strongly influenced by Mudejar and Byzantine styles.
