Great tester of Flamenco, good sound and great atmosphere. Ticket costs only 10 euros per person for 30 mins of show, so there were no high expectations at the beginning, but it turned out to be a cool Bcn experience. Thank you!

My mum and I went to this show on Friday night. We have been to a few flamenco shows in the past but thought we would try this one as its just off las ramblas so was really convenient to get to. We bought the tickets online a few hours before for just 10 euros each which is a bargain.... More

This is the third time I have been here in the last few years and every time has been excellent. There are 3 shows an evening each lasting about 30 minutes. The venue is very small which adds to the atmosphere and experience. The stage is very small and is very close to the audience. The male dancer was particularly... More

This was one of the more disappointing events we’ve attended. My wife, daughter and I all agreed that this was a waste of time and money. We booked this in reliance of Rick Steve’s review that it is riveting, fun and of reliably good quality. Here are the facts that we experienced: First they overbooked, so that there were more...

I have seen a flamenco show before and this was just did not compare to it. The stage was small, the show was short and the show didn't create energy as I had seen before. I was quite disappointed.

This venue has three shows per evening starting at 8:30PM so great for an after dinner stop. Buy tickets online and skip the line: especially since its a small capacity building and you may not get in at the desired time.

We saw the 10:30pm show the second week of March while vacationing in Barcelona. I am well aware that Flamenco did not originate in Barcelona. It is a very small and simple venue with cheap folding chairs. One guy was singing on stage, I thought he was drunk, he was horrible!! The show was so bad that it was actually... More

It was our first flamenco show, so I can't compair to others. However, it was very intense but short. It's a 30 minutes show, but 15-20 of actual dancing. Try to seat as close to the stage as you can...
