La Plaza de Toros Monumental. This was the last bullfighting ring in Barcelona in operation. Bullfighting in Barcelona has been a controversial issue for many years. On 17th June 2007 an estimated  2,000 people gathered here for an international anti-bullfighting demonstration in Barcelona. On the same day, however, there were 19,000 people, who filled the Monumental bull fighting ring to capacity, to see the return of the torero Jose Tomas. Barcelona's city council declared the city 'anti-bullfighting' in April 2004. 2011 was the last year of bull fighting at Plaza Monumental
