Flamenco in Barcelona, ole!

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.

Palau de la Música, one of the greatest representatives of Catalan modernism

El Palau de la Música is a music auditorium designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the greatest representatives of Catalan modernism. It was built between 1905 and 1908 and declared a National Monument in 1971.

It was destined to concerts of orchestral and instrumental music, as well as choral interpretations and music productions. However, in the Palau there have also been cultural, political, theatre plays and, of course, the most varied musical performances. Nowadays, this kind of performances are still held. And you can complete the experience with the lovely café and restaurant venues inside, as it is written in the Lexus Magazine.

The Concert Auditorium is the most important venue of its type in Cataluña, and it regularly stages world premieres. When entering, aside from the heavenly skylight, you will be struck by the organ, a bust of Anselm Clavé, another of Beethoven, and a plethora of decorative motifs: palms, fruit, flowers and jewels.

The foyer of the Palau is a great venue that has been converted into a spacious café-restaurant whose culinary highlight is definitely breakfast. It´s a good way to start the visit of the Palau.

The Palau restaurant, at open air and placed on the ground floor in one of the places in Barcelona to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing food. Then, you have The Mirador Restaurant, located at the top of the Plaza del Palau and overlooking the Art Nouveau façade by Domènech i Montaner. It offers a menu of lunch and dinner weekdays (starter, main course and dessert), a tasting menu and a menu with a selection of seasonal cuisine.

This music auditorium is placed in Barcelona, specifically in Sant Pere neighborhood and our Negresco Princess is near to this majestic building, so it is a must if you are on vacation in Barcelona. As tip, we suggest you to see one of its corners where you will see the legend of San Jordi.
