The cradle of flamenco is Granada; and also in Andalusia, Spain and the whole world. A land that has given international artists: Al cante you will find artists like Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente, Antonio Carmona, Manuel Ávila, Morenito de Íllora and more. On guitar, Emilio Maya, Juan and Pepe Habichuela, Juan Maya Marote, Miguel Ángel Cortés,… and on dance, Eva Yerbabuena, La Presy, Lidia Valle, Mario Maya, Manuel Liñán, Patricia Guerrero or Rafael Amargo. They are just the tip of the iceberg that crosses borders. Because flamenco artists, there are many more. To talk about flamenco in Granada is to talk about Sacromonte. The legendary neighbourhood full of gypsy soul and passion.
Also known as “cante jondo” or “cante grande”, it is the most emblematic artistic expression of Andalusia and known throughout the world. It is not only singing, dancing and guitar. It is also percussion, wind, piano or flute.
If you’re visiting Granada, you can’t miss some of the following flamenco shows that will make you vibrate, give you goose bumps and experience up close the passion of flamenco in its purest essence.

Attentive staff, good service and in addition, the prices are the lowest of all the flamenco shows that exist in the city.
