If flamenco is an experience not to be missed in Spain, enjoying it in this emblematic quarter of cave-houses excavated in one of the hills of Granada is unparalleled. The gypsies arrived here in the 15th c. and their art was mixed with the Andalusi. This is how the 'zambra' was born, the ancestral flamenco dance with a choreography based on the gypsy weddings that can still be enjoyed in Sacromonte.

Culture and arts
Where Along Camino del Sacromonte, which is the old Muslim road to the town of Guadix.
How to get there Of course, take a taxi is a good option. Also the C34 minibus (from Plaza Nueva). Some caves organize their own route by bus, picking up clients with a reservation.
Some of the caves offer two sessions, with shows from 20:00 or 20:30 the
first, and around 22:00 the second. When there is only one session, it
usually starts around 22:00.
Flamenco show without dinner, from 20€.
With dinner, from 50€.
Optional dinner Almost all the caves also offer the possibility of dining before the show. Some of them offer Halal and / or vegetarian menus.
Our tip These are shows based on the flamenco tradition, but completely touristy. Of course, the real flamenco fans do not come here. But the show and the scene are definitely worth it. You will feel the power of flamenco from close up.
