The Bullfighting Museum of Cordoba is situated in Plaza Maimonides, very close to the Cardinal Salazar Hospital, and occupies a former 16th century aristocratic mansion. The long tradition behind bullfighting in Cordoba has made it possible to collect all the relevant artefacts belonging to the five bullfighting ’Caliphs’: Lagartijo, Guerrita, Machaquito, Manolete and Manuel Benítez, El Cordobés.
The exhibition includes contemporary photographs, bullfighters’ suits, old posters for bullfights, recordings, bullfighting equipment, sculptures and paintings: all of which brings the fascinating world of bullfighting closer to the visitor. The museum has been rebuilt in March 2014.
