Flamenco in Granada

On the very first week we arrived to Granada we went to see a flamenco show. We are in Andalucía where this dance originates from and we wanted to see whether we can detect a difference between this and the show we saw in Barcelona (you can read about it here). Naturally we couldn’t as we don’t know much about this dance but the show was still fantastic.

There are many ‘tablaos’, places where you can see flamenco and all of them are touristic so it doesn’t matter really which one you choose, I think all of them will be an unforgettable experience. We chose the Casa del Arte Flamenco as it was highly rated by others on Tripadvisor.

When we arrived we were all ushered in a room and sat quite close to the stage. As soon as the first cord was strung on the guitar, the first note was sang and the first stamp was done on the floor we were all transfixed on the show and we couldn’t take our eyes off of the performers. They really gave their all and the passion was just indescribable. There was so much energy in that little room! We could only take photos during the last performance and no videos were allowed. Here are some moments of the show.

As I said there are many places to see a show but if you’d like to go to this particular ‘tablao’ you can find it under Cuesta de Gomérez, 11.

Our next stop in Spain will be Seville. Watch this space to see a blog about the famous flamenco style, the ‘Sevillana’.
