After pickup from select Costa Brava locations, you’ll travel to medieval castle, Valltordera, in an air-conditioned coach. On arrival, you’ll be greeted by the count and countess of the castle — descendants of Valltordera’s original owners — before taking a seat with an excellent view of the upcoming festivities.
Lose yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of the show as you listen to a trumpet fanfare and see jousting knights duel on horseback. While watching the tournament, you’ll enjoy a glass of rosé wine or soft drink.
Upgrade to pleasure your palate with a hearty Spanish banquet including vegetable soup, roast chicken, pork chops, fresh bread and ice cream. When the exhilarating joust comes to a conclusion, a live band takes over to perform energetic Latino songs.
Be seduced by the sounds of tango and cha-cha, and refresh with drinks from a fully-stocked bar (own expense). The evening concludes with a feisty performance of Spanish flamenco in the castle’s opulent ballroom; gaze at a talented troupe of dancers as they perform to the sound of Spanish guitars.
When the show concludes, relax during the journey back to your specified Costa Brava location.
As an instructor of Mounted Combat, and former flamenco student, I went into this show with really low expectations. We expected it to be cheesy and parts of it, like the Pegasus, played by a very patient long-suffering albino certainly were. However, the riding was more than competent, the knightly games extremely well done, and the stage combat excellent. There were some beautiful Spanish and other Baroque horses ridden with skill in particular the Lippizan? ridden by the 'Barbarian' woman, and the actors did a great job of engaging the audience.
Parts of the flamenco show were a little too 'Broadway' for my taste but that's understandable given the target audience, and even still those numbers were beautifully costumed and well choreographed. The middle of the show is the best, with an amazing guitar solo by Edu Vico my new guitar hero, and solos from the key dancers. The costumed tableaus and interactions with the horses are not as exciting as either the mediaeval show or the dancers on their own, but they add colour and interest and are an impressive display of how well-trained the horses are.
We ordered the tickets without the meal, and were glad we did, as it didn't look worthwhile. The free drink with the lower priced ticket is actually many drinks as you have unlimited access to at least a bottle of red and rose, plus the waiters brought sangria around. However, the wine was dreadful and the sangria tasted like it was made with Tang, so one drink is about all you'd want. Even still, the show was well worth the price.
I'm so glad we made the last minute decision to do this!
Excellent nights entertainment with the Medieval tournament, horse skills and flamenco display to keep you entertained. The meal provided was also great. Fun night!
It's a very nice show. We enjoyed our time a lot
After being on the show year before where making written complain, never got a replay back, my family and I went this year to thinking it will be better and better organised but we where wrong.
