new location for casa de la memoria

Hi. I understand that there is a new location. We will be in Sevilla May 24-27.

How far in advance do we need to buy tickets? Are they open on a Sunday night? That might be a good thing to do our last night there. Do you still need to get there well in advance for a good seat?

Thanks all

The previous place was quite intimate and maybe the new place can seat more ? previously you could buy tickets usually the day before or on the day. Better to find it and see how the seating is. Clearly nice to be up front and close to the performers. It is next door to the Lebrija palace .

new location is great. You can before/after your flamenco show go and check the Metropol Parasol structure in Plaza de la Encarnacion, meters away (you'll see it) You can go up to the rooftop for great views.

myspace, hadn't even considered this so thanks. the new locale offers 2 shows-7:30 and 9 so we will try for the 7:30 show. how long do we spend at the metropol parasol? is sunset a better time?

i know you previously had to secure a ticket and then wait on line since seats were not assigned at casa de la memoria. is the same true in the new location? guess we will get on line around 6:30 or so to ensure first row seats. sure we will be hungry when show lets out-any favorite tapas bars nearby?

metropol parasol is a building/structure/something with a museum (roman and arab ruins, called Antiquarium) in the lower ground floor, a food market in the ground floor, a square in the 1st floor and rooftop views from the top floor. If you go morning time the market will be open, but I think the rooftop is better as you say at sunset. I would give it 1 hour or so, including wandering around, etc.

take a look yatzer.com/Metropol-Parasol-The-World-s-Larg…

If you are planning to go to Italica, in the outskirts of seville, then the antiquarium is not that important (or if you don't like roman ruins anyway)

as for favorite tapas bars in the area:

- Pando: Calle Cuna 5, in front of your venue. More of a restaurant than a tapas bar, but great place for a informal dinner.

- La Giganta, in Calle Alhondiga 6, very close, great tapas.

- Ajoblanco, in Calle Alhondiga 19, small but great bar. Mix of andalusian tapas and mexican botanas.

- Los Coloniales, in Plaza del Cristo de Burgos, 19, a bit after the metropol Parasol. Nice square, classic bar. It's always full so you'll have to wait.

- Heladeria Rayas, not a bar, but a to-go ice-cream shop. One of the best ice-cream I've tasted. In Calle Almirante Apodaca, 1, same square as Los Coloniales, but on the opposite side.
