The cradle of flamenco lies in southern Spain but no one denies that Barcelona’s a big-time flamenco city too.

Flamenco, which is listed by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage, is based on singing, guitar playing and dance. Deep feelings, strength and passion are the foremost characteristics that people should have to excel in these fields. In this way alone can they convey all the emotion that flamenco should arouse in the spirit of those who appreciate and enjoy it.

Numerous flamenco clubs are found in the Catalan capital, where all facets of this music can be enjoyed. Three excellent establishments, however, stand out from all the rest.

El Palacio del Flamenco is a classic spot where you can dine on delicious ‘tapas’ while watching the flamenco dance show. Tarantos, a historic flamenco club, has played host to the best names in the field. And Tablao Flamenco Cordobés, which has been located at the Rambla since 1970 and features a breathtaking decor inspired by the Alhambra of Granada, is acclaimed for its live flamenco performances.
