Flamenco in Barcelona
Tablao Cordobes is one of the most important and oldest flamenco clubs in Barcelona. In this club you can experience all characteristics of Andalusian culture including food, drinks and flamenco dance. The shows are quite attractive, so it is very popular with tourists (for additional information – Attractions and Tours in Barcelona).
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. Main elements of a flamenco show are improvisation and interactivity. It is popular in all parts of the world. It was declared by UNESCO as one of the masterpieces of heritage of the Spain and the world, which can be considered to be a great honor.
Though flamenco comes from the southern regions of Spain, like Andalusia and it is mainly popular in cities such as Málaga and Madrid, you can enjoy flamenco performances also in Barcelona. Since Flamenco is not a part of the Catalan culture and the city is not one of the main centers of flamenco, most of these shows are rather tourist attractions and not too authentic performances (for additional information – Flamenco in Barcelona).
Who is it Recommended for?
Flamenco Night at Tablao Cordobes is recommended for everyone who want to enjoy a full experience of Andalusian culture including a long flamenco performance and dinner. If you just just want to “taste” flamenco culture, this is not the place for you. In this case flamenco shows organized in Los Tarantos or in some of the flamenco clubs in Arenas de Barcelona are more suitable for you (for additional information – Flamenco in Barcelona and Barcelona Flamenco Shows – Tarantos Flamenco Show).
These shows are not recommended for tourists with kids because they are expensive and long. Tarantos Flamenco Show is shorter and more tourist-friendly, so it would be a better option for them (for additional information – Barcelona Flamenco at Tablao Cordobes for Kids and Families, Barcelona Flamenco at Tarantos for Kids and Families and Kids and Families in Barcelona).
This attraction is a wonderful way to spend your time when it is cold and raining outside, or, alternatively on hot summer days (for additional information – Winter Vacation in Barcelona, Summer Vacation in Barcelona and Weather in Barcelona).
