We are a FLAMENCO SHOW CAVE in Granada located in the picturesque district of Sacromonte and it is considered one of the main tourist attractiveness in our city. Today fifty years after its founding we continue organizing every night the gypsy tipycal folklore of Sacromonte masterfully offered by the descendents of María La Canastera responsible for maintaining the tradition that she left .

The place was recommended to us at the hotel's front desk. The ticket included transportation from the hotel and back, the show and a drink (sangria or soda). The place is a nice gypsy cave in Sacromonte. The show lasts close to an hour. The show is good, specially Paco the male dancer. At the end of the show, a... More

We went here to watch a Flamenco performance. Make sure you are early so that you get a better seat. It is a small cave and is packed. Very commercially run place. You sit, the lights dim, the dancers and the singers come in, play for 30 mins, the drink orders are taken and served (sangria, beer or water), the... More

The flamenco show was very authentic, with the dancers standing very close to the audience. You could sense their passion for flamenco from the way they danced and sang. The guitar music was exceptional and the singers' performance was very touching. We would definitely recommend this show to anyone who wants to experience flamenco upclose.

Lovely evening, dancing and guitar playing fantastic ,however some time was wasted serving drinks and collecting glasses which could have been spent with more dancing . Very interesting area to visit

This cave was recommended to us by Ana, from Walk In Granada and we were very clear that we don't want a tourist monkey show. Maybe it was the audience (almost all of them a highschool classroom from Denmark). Maybe it was the countenance of the performers who seemed visible bored, sad and tired. Maybe it was the fact that... More

This is a unique setting. The long cylindrical cave is hung with copper pots and photos of dancers of the past and VIP visitors (e.g. Edward and Mrs. Simpson). You are seated very close to the performers. Dress in layers - this room gets warm! It is easy to reserve a ticket online and make your own way to and... More

The place is incredibly nice, a cave lovely decorated. The show was not at the same level: I'm not am expert of flamenco and this was my first time, but me and my gf can feel how the performers felt to be "at work" instead that having an artistic performance; in few words the show was not emotional (also the...

Amazing show. So passionate, very authentic, family orientated, and overall incredible experience. The decor takes you on a trip throughout the owner's life and experience dancing Flamenco. It makes you feel at home when you're just a visitor. The show was vibrant, moving and I am so glad we went here!

Our group of six purchased tickets to the show from our Walk in Granada tour guide. When we arrived half an hour early we were directed by management to sit in the back rows of chairs in the empty room; their explanation: a tour group was arriving and would get the front row seats. We stated that when purchasing tickets... More
