Plaza de toros de Las Ventas
The plaza de toros de Las Ventas, known simply as Las Ventas, is the largest bullfighting ring in Spain, located in the Guindalera quarter of the Salamanca district. It was inaugurated on June 17, 1931. Its seating capacity of 23,798, makes it the third-largest bullfighting run the world, after bullrings in Mexico and Venezuela, respectively. This bullring was designed by the architect José Espeliú in the Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish) style with ceramic incrustations. The seats are situated in ten “tendidos”.
JVVA provided an advanced analysis of the simultaneous evacuation of the building, through evacuation modeling and empirical engineering calculations. As a result of the evacuation analysis, different safety measures were developed and prescribed to be implemented in the building in order to increase the fluidity levels and safety levels in the evacuation of those conflictive zones inside the building.
