The soulful art of singing, guitar playing, and dancing known as flamenco originated in southern Spain, making Cordoba the perfect place to immerse yourself in the fiery, evocative tradition. Here are some of the best tablaos (flamenco clubs) in town to catch a show.
One of Cordoba’s most authentic flamenco shows in Andalucia is staged at the Tablao El Cardenal. During summer months, the show takes place on the Andalusian-style patio. In winter, it’s moved to an indoor auditorium. Meson La Buleria stages a more intimate performance, while Arte y Sabores de Cordoba stages their show on the site of ancient Arab baths. Book ahead to get your preferred date and time.
Flamenco Shows with Dinner
While the Tablao El Cardenal doesn’t offer the option of dinner with its flamenco performances, other venues in town do, including Arte y Sabores de Cordoba, Taberna El No. 10, Patio de la Juderia, and Carmen GastroFlamenco.
Flamenco Shows with Lessons
One of the best ways to further your appreciation of the art form is to try it yourself. Flamenco Insights in the heart of the Santa Marina neighborhood offers immersive flamenco tours that include a dance lesson, historical tour of Cordoba flamenco, and a live show.
