We went a night on May 24 to this zambra show. The cave is located along the Camino de Sacromonte, Cueva de La Rocio features two different caves plus a large outdoor terrace with fabulous views of the Alhambra and Generalife. The flamenco shows of approximately 45 minutes include between six to eight different artists. Seating is on each side... More

The cave is set in a neat little neighborhood with amazing views of La Alhambra. We bought tickets online easily. It was cheaper than the recommended Flamenco show in Seville. You go into a long narrow room and he dancers dance down the middle. It was so cool! Their skirts hit my knee as they twirled. They seemed to have... More

This place was popular. We totally enjoyed the show in a cave. A very special event for us. The performers were full of energy and passion. One drink per person was offered. The cave was packed with no empty seat. We walked back to our hotel in the city. The walk at night with the shining moon over your head... More

Loved it! I was hesitant to go because I had heard it was so touristy, but I'm so glad I went for it. Where else can you see flamenco in a cave? It was really great, so fun! And the staff at La Rocio is super friendly, making it an even better experience. Go!

The flamingo dance was spectacular. Sat on the side wall about half way in the room. the seating arrangements may be tight but it gives the audience a up close view of the performance. You can literally feel the energy and intensity broadcast by these artists. One of the more senior dancers was absolutely amazing. For those who are interested... More

It was a very good experience in general. We have been here twice and it has always been very enjoyable. Perfect for drinks and show, I don't think I would dine here as there are so many bars and restaurants on the way to the Albayzin

We went with our four children (aged 6 to 11) and enjoyed fantastic food and Sangria and then a wonderful lively show that left everyone in high spirits. This place was recommended by our hotel but it was the right choice for us as you get to see the Flamenco in very close proximity and in authentic surroundings.

This was one of our highlights of our Granada trip after Al-Hambra. We arrived at the location in Sacromonte as a part of the tour arranged with the help of our Hotel. The performance is inside an authentic Gypsy Cave in Sacromonte. The place is decorated nicely. We were seated and then choice of drinks was asked and then started... More

Note that you do not go there for a drink nor a meal. You go there for Flamenco. It won't be comfy, you'll be a bit squeezed. But what a show! Flamenco is not only a dance. From the guitarist to the singers and of course the dancers, all the artists were amazing. Intense, fierce, gipsy, powerful, touching... Not to... More

We joined a busload of people (they picked us up at our hotel) for this show, which had been recommended to us by a real live native of Granada. We liked it. It was high energy, good dancers (actually, there seemed to be an A-team and a B-team), good and loud musicians and singers (I mean, you're in a cave... More
