1. Re: Flamenco in Pamplona

Well, I am so sorry to tell you that asking about flamenco in Pamplona or anywhere in the north of Spain is a little bit like asking for a traditional cowboy show in Boston, Massachusetts. Flamenco is a traditional dance from the region of Andalucía, in the south of Spain. Maybe you are able to attend to a flamenco show in Madrid, as it is the capital city and you can find almost everything there. You can even get to attend a flamenco event in some touristic areas out of Andalucía, just because they try to sell that kind of fake shows to the tourists.

But north of Madrid it is almost impossible to see flamenco, excepting some special festivals some days of the year (there is a flamenco festival in Pamplona from the 26th to the 31th August, but there are Galician, German, Arabic... festivals too during the year, as an exotic thing).

Same thing happens to paella, a traditional dish in the region of Valencia, in the Mediterranean coast. Asking for a traditional paella in Pamplona would be ridiculous too. Just try to enjoy the culture, folklore and food of every region, not to simplify the huge variety of Spain in just two or three clichés.

Thank you.

I saw there was a flamenco festival in Pamplona in August and thought this might indicate an underlying enthusiasm for same throughout the year. Have seem some very enjoyable flamenco in Santa Fe New Mexico as well as Boston so hoped we might get lucky.

Thanks for your suggestions
