1. La Casa del Flamenco

Every night there is a flamenco show in this inner courtyard of a 15th-century palace-house in the Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz. Here simplicity is a virtue: a small tablao with four chairs (singer, guitarist and two bailaores) and comfortable scissor seats that surround it on all three sides. All in the charm of a column patio, with the typical tiles and flowers, plus the barred doors and windows. The show lasts about an hour, and is done with ambient sound, to feel the music without decorations and feel the vibration of the ” taconeo”.

2. El Tablao el Arenal

Personally this is my favorite tablao performance. If you want to see a quality flamenco show, El Arenal is one of the most classic venues in Seville, and in its more than forty years of history it has managed to recycle itself to offer a professional service without giving up the best flamenco vibes and the spontaneity of their live shows. El Arenal is in the neighborhood of the same name, very close to the Maestranza bullring. They offer 2 shows every day and you can have dinner to the first show of the day. The building is from the 17th century, but it is completely renovated and inside it is surprising how comfortable it is. For example, the views of the stage are good from any table. Although there are other cheaper tablaos, here you find much more entertainment and artists on stage with a variety of cante, Spanish guitar and dance in different styles.

3. Tablao Los Gallos

It is one of the oldest tablaos in Seville, since 1966, and has aged without losing strength, gaining prestige and adding sediment to the art that is breathed on its walls. Here you find pure and traditional flamenco: guitar, voice and dance. Especially the dancer captivates you from the first moment, with its dedication and a contagious passion. Los Gallos is a very small tablao, which is a shame because it is always full and can be overwhelming. Address: Plaza de Santa Cruz 11 Phone: 34 954 21 69 81

4. La Cantaora

This tablao is set in the heart of the Andalusian capital city, in an authentic environment that helps you connect with the purest Flamenco atmosphere. The peculiarity of the Tablao Flamenco La Cantaora is that the “festero” is present, a complete artist that sings and dances as they interpret 19th-century palos.

Flamenco show at Casala Teatro A charming stage proposal takes advantage of two stops at the traditional Triana market to offer an intimate show for only 28 people.

Brief history about Flamenco

Brief history of flamenco Flamenco is a traditional style of music and dance of the Andalusian community and although its origins are not clear, it is associated with the gypsy ethnic group that has been fundamental in its development and evolution. This style should not be confused with Andalusian folklore, among which are sevillanas, for example, it is an artistic genre that departs from traditional features. It has even become a cult art without losing its popular character, being a hallmark of Seville and a great tourist attraction. In 2010 Unesco declared flamenco Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and is currently very widespread in the world to the point that it arouses more interest to foreigners than to Spaniards themselves. As an example of this, most of the students of the schools of this art are foreigners and Japan is considered the second homeland of this genre, with 60,000 people studying in 650 academies throughout the country.
