La Malagueta is a bullring at Málaga, Andalucía, Spain. The bulling, shaped like a hexadecagon, was built in the neo-Mudéjar style and opened on 11 June 1876. The bullring still hosts bullfights and it also houses a museum dedicated to famous matador Antonio Oróñez.

La Malagueta hosts events during the Spanish-style bullfighting season which is from  April to September. There are two bullfights in Semana Santa. The highlight of which is the Corrida Picassiana, where bullfighters dress in costumes taking inspiration from the style, vision and shapes of the great Málaga-born artist Pablo Ruiz Picasso. During the Feria de Málaga, the Bullfighting Fair occurs with important events.

La Malagueta was built in 1874, by the architect Joaquín Rucoba who also built the Atarazanas Market, in neo-Mudejar style.
