The Tablao de Carmen pays tribute to the great flamenco dancer, Carmen Amaya, born in 1913 in the gypsy quarter of Somorrostro which then existed in what is today Barcelona's Olympic Village. Carmen Amaya made her debut in 1929 before King Alfonso XII on the site which is today the Tablao de Carmen at the inauguration of Poble Espanyol de Montjuic.

Superb flamenco !

Excellent food, magnificent dancers and singers. It is really "a must" when visiting Barcelona. It is also very well reachable by bus from plaza espana.

There is not much to tell. This was THE highlight of our visit to Barcelona. Very possibly the single most breathtaking performance I have ever witnessed. The dancers are simply out of this world, all you can do is stare, trying not to miss a second of it. The service is great, the food is delicious and depending on what... More

This show gave me chills! I really wanted an authentic experience so I'm glad picked Tablao de Carmen. The music was put on solely by four men, one on a guitar, and supported by the rhythmic clapping and stomping of flamenco dancers waiting their turn. We were seated right in the front, just inches from the dancers, and it felt... More

Every five years or so, I bring a group of college students from the U.S. to study for a month in Barcelona. El Tablao de Carmen is always on the "must-do" list. In fact, I regularly save it as the final outing for the trip. It's such a wonderful way to wrap up our experience in one of the world's... More

El Tablao de Carmen is a good place to appreciate Flamenco, from its history and heritage to its various forms, and of course, the dance itself. Remember to book tickets way in advance as they are sold out very quickly.

We went with an excursion on Viking Star cruise. Located within "Little Spain" it is worth going early to look around before going into the restaurant. The tables are typical cafe style and very close together, as we were a group the wine and tapas was served to the table rather than per couple. There was a good selection of... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
