Flamenco is art and it is part of the culture of Spain that consists on typical dance with music of Andalusia.
Although, Flamenco is not the most traditional in Barcelona as are the “castellers” and “sardanas”, it has been named Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and it is worth to see and enjoy it if Barcelona is your one and only stop in Spain.
To enjoy their color and passion, you must attend a “tablao” which is a space in which flamenco shows are performed. An environment where as well as music, dance and rhythm you can have gastronomy and where the “rebujitos” and “sangrias” can not miss. Here, in the “tablaos” is where you can hear the famous “Ole” with which the “cantaores” and “bailaores” are encouraged.
If you wonder where to see “flamenco” in Barcelona, there are many well known places.
The “Tablao Flamenco Cordobés” placed in Ramblas is one of the best-known “tablaos”in the city. It is inspired by Nazarí art and its interior reminds the Alhambra in Granada.
In the middle of Eixample you will find the “Palacio del Flamenco”. A different tablao that is placed in a former renovated theater and makes it the largest flamenco show in Barcelona.
A reference of “flamenco” in Barcelona is Los Tarantos. A tablao in Plaça Reial that combines the most important flamenco figures with emerging talent full of passion and energy.
The best flamenco tablaos in Barcelona are very close to the Hotel Negresco Princess located in the center of Barcelona and it is also very easy to reach them from the Hotel Barcelona Princess which is perfectly connected to the center of Barcelona.
