We had seen a 2 hour serious Flamenco Show in Seville and found this much more upbeat- and also different.. yes it seemed touristy but the energy of the dancers and musicians was amazing- they seemed to really work their butt off.. even my cynical 14 year old boy( who is not at that age)-- who fell asleep at the...

I know nothing about flamenco or zambra but I know a lot about music and this was something very special. The rhythmic patterns made by one guitar and six people clapping different rythyms were remarkably complex and highly unusual as were the chord sequences of the guitar player. The singers had amazing voices and sung with raw passion, energy and... More

Our hotel made the arrangements for us to see Flamenco in Sacramonte. It began with a bus ride and a tour of the Albayzin district. My initial impression was we were spending too much time on the bus and perhaps not enough time at Flamenco. We finally arrived at the place and filled the cave with tourists. The show began... More

We had seen a flamenco show in Sevilla, and jumped at the chance to see Zambra in Sacramonte at the Cueva de la Rocio. Zambra is an ancestor to flamenco that is practiced by the Roma community in Granada. The show was in a tiny cave room, and packed to the gills. The music is loud and primitive with a... More

We were told to experience flamenco in the caves. After reading the reviews we were skeptical of even going. This place was great, walked up before the 10 pm show and paid 20 euros per person for an hour show. Yes it is a tourist attraction but not like a Disney production, these performers had talent and passion. Sweat flying... More

This Gypsy show was really amazing, the way they dance and their music, the strength of movements. Also, the decoration of the place is really different. It is a small long room decorated with things that gypsy use in their normal life and photos. During this evening, we tasted sangria which is a speciality of this region.

Vans from the Flamenco Show picked us up in town and drove us up the hills into the Gypsy neighborhood. The drive was up narrow roads at a breakneck pace, it was as thrilling as a roller coaster. The Flamenco show took place in caves that have been converted into living spaces. The dances were like opera; the performances were... More

When I bought the ticket to the Alhambra over the net, there was an add for this show. I later found out that they also recommend other but probably similar venues. It might be a way of promoting this kind of shows or the Roam population and either is fine by me. We actually ended up bying it from the... More
