Flamenco in Spain

Let’s immerse ourselves in the spellbinding world of flamenco! 💃 And yes, if you’re looking for an authentic and captivating experience on your trip to Spain, look no further.

Flamenco is much more than just dancing or singing. It’s a true artistic expression that combines music, singing, dancing and (very) intense emotions. On stage, the dancers, singers and guitarists captivate the audience and generally put on a show that is remembered for a very long time. Since 2010, flamenco has been part of humanity’s intangible cultural heritage.

In this article, I take you on a tour of the best places to see flamenco in Spain.

In Andalusia

Flamenco has its roots in Andalusia, in southern Spain. The exact origins of flamenco are not entirely clear. However, it is generally accepted that flamenco was born of a mixture of different cultural and musical influences.

Andalusia has a rich history in which Roman, Arab, Jewish and Gypsy cultures have coexisted and influenced each other. Each of these cultures is said to have made its own contribution to the birth of flamenco.

Flamenco is also closely linked to passion and emotional expression. Even today, it is a means of expressing the deepest feelings. This emotional dimension is one of its most striking characteristics. Attending a flamenco show promises to be a thrilling experience.

Today, Andalusia continues to be regarded as the cradle of flamenco. Emblematic cities such as Seville and Granada are renowned for their tablaos (venues for flamenco performances) and festivals dedicated to this spellbinding art form.


Seville vibrates to the rhythm of its lively tablaos!

If you’re looking for an authentic flamenco show in Seville, I highly recommend booking an evening at Baraka Sala Flamenca. Located in the heart of the historic Triana district, this tablao offers flamenco performances almost every night.  The warm, intimate setting will allow you to fully immerse yourself in this captivating experience.

In Seville, on the Plaza de España, there are often spontaneous flamenco shows! If you’re lucky, you’ll come across a performance.


Like Seville, Granada is full of authentic tablaos. My favourites are in the Sacromonte and Albaicin districts.

If you’re looking for a pleasant, authentic venue, I recommend Jardines de Zoraya. This venue also has a restaurant adjacent to the auditorium.

Like its two other Andalusian neighbours, Cordoba offers a vibrant stage for flamenco!

If you’re looking for an authentic Córdoba experience, I recommend booking an evening at the Tablao Flamenco Cardenal.  Located in the historic district of Judería, this renowned tablao offers flamenco shows every evening except Sunday.

Every year in June, the entire city of Cordoba becomes a flamenco stage! It’s the White Night of Flamenco! Experience it at least once.


Flamenco is an experience to be enjoyed on the Costa del Sol too! Head to the Tablao Alegría for a show full of emotion, where this Andalusian art form is honoured by four or five talented and passionate artists.

In Madrid

Although flamenco originated in Andalusia, Madrid, the Spanish capital, has become a must for flamenco lovers!

When you visit Madrid, don’t miss the chance to experience the passion and energy of flamenco. I particularly recommend the Torre Bermejas show, right in the heart of the city. This Tablao, with its very Andalusian influence, offers a performance every evening. What’s more, you can also eat there for an even more complete experience.

Price: €25 (show); €35 (show + drinks); €50 (show and dinner)

Duration: 1 hour performance

In Valencia

Valencia is also a city where you can discover the magic of flamenco. There aren’t many tablaos open, but the shows on offer are top quality and will transport you into the magical and powerful world of flamenco. I particularly like the Tablao Palosanto in the Cabanyal district of Valencia.
