We were fortunate enough to see the gala closure of the flamenco season. It's a beautiful theatre with lots of excellent cultural events. Try it out to get a flavour of the true South of Spain for its music and dance. Very reasonable prices for...More

I would suggest that it is smart casual. It is an impressive venue but suits and ties are not required.
