Built between 1966 and 1967, the bullring was inaugurated on 28 June 1967 with a corrida by Jaime Ostos, El Cordobés and Tinín.
Its façade had three big doors and a bullring was able for a capacity for 12,277 spectators.
In 2013, mayor Javier Lacalle announced the intention of building a new indoor arena due to the risk of collapse of the bullring, but due to its high costs, the solution was to integrally renovate the bullring and to add a roof.
On 18 August 2015, the Spanish national basketball team played the first basketball match in the arena. It was a friendly game against Venezuela. One year later, Spain would play again in the Coliseum, this time against Angola.
In 2017, after the promotion of local basketball club CB Miraflores to the Spanish top league, it started to play their home matches at the Coliseum. The first official match was played on 1 October 2017 and ended with a loss of the host team against Iberostar Tenerife by 65-81, in front of 8,817 spectators.
