It is the oldest bullring in the province of Seville and is built on the parade ground of a Muslim castle dating from around 1400, with archaeological remains of a wall, minarets and the main door of the town's old Andalusian castle integrated into its interior.

El Castillo de las Guardas’ bullring is located in the town where two of the province’s most important fighting bull breeding farms are situated. Its location is unique in that it can be seen from the porch of the San Juan Bautista Parish Church. 

The bullring dates back to 1870 and was inaugurated on 20 June 1878 and rebuilt in 1942. The old bullring of the Sierra Norte of Seville is built of masonry, brick and wood and is polygonal in shape. The ring has a diameter of about 40 metres and has 4 bull pens, 1 stable, 1 corral for fighting cattle, an infirmary and a chapel.

Osuna’s Bullring was designed by Aníbal González. The construction began at the beginning of 1902 with ashlars from the ancient Roman city of Osuna. It was opened on 13 May 1904, with Montes and Chamaquito, the two most famous bullfighters at the time. The bullring was built to prevent the bullfights from taking place in the town squares.

The new bullring of Morón de la Frontera, owned by the businessman and farmer Manuel Morilla, was inaugurated on 10 March 2001 by Manuel Benítez El Cordobés, Enrique Ponce and El Juli. Construction began on 19 October 2000. The budget amounted to 240 million pesetas.
