Flamenco in Barcelona
Los Tarantos is a restaurant in Barcelona which is famous for interesting and tourist-friendly flamenco shows. It is situated in heart of the city, in the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic), on Plaça Reial.
Flamenco is a traditional Spanish dance which is full of passion and feelings. It is a mixture of Arabic and Gypsy dance accompanied by trumpet and traditional Spanish guitar. Though flamenco comes from the southern regions of Spain, like Andalusia, and it is mainly popular in cities such as Málaga and Madrid, and of course in Barcelona. Since the city is not one of the main centers of flamenco, most of these shows are rather tourist attractions and not too authentic performances.
Flamenco shows organized in Los Tarantos are a good example for these kinds of tourist-friendly performances. In the restaurant you can experience a spectacular show in which combination of guitar, singing and dance create a magic called flamenco (for additional information – Flamenco in Barcelona).
Who is it Recommended for?
Due to the fact these shows are tourist-friendly, Los Tarantos is visited by numerous local and international guests. Compared with other performances in Barcelona and in other Spanish cities, these shows are quite short, they last just for 30 minutes. Moreover, they are very cheap and the whole environment is dedicated to tourists. If you are a real flamenco fan and want to see an authentic flamenco performance, this club is not the most suitable place for you. More authentic shows can be enjoyed in Tablao Flamenco Cordobes and in flamenco clubs in Arenas de Barcelona.
Tarantos Flamenco Show is also an ideal program for families. It is short, not too professional and does not contains erotic elements, but it is still attractive and enjoyable (for additional information – Barcelona Flamenco at Tarantos for Kids and Families and Kids and Families in Barcelona).
Besides these, Tarantos Flamenco Show could be a perfect start for those who want to enjoy the parties and the active nightlife of Barcelona.
