The flamenco is Spain’s most traditional dance. Although this tradition is rooted in the south, especially in Andalusia, Barcelona has been home to great Flamenco singers and dancers. Carmen Amaya, Miguel Poveda and, more recently, Rosalía are examples of Flamenco artists born in Catalonia.
Today, there are various establishments, known as ‘tablaos flamencos’, that put-on performances nearly every day of the week. Going out for a meal and attending a Flamenco show is a fun and exciting experience for both locals and tourists.
If you are visiting Barcelona and you want an experience that combines tourism, food and a Flamenco show, then we recommend our reduced-size group tour of Born with a tapas dinner and Flamenco show. An unforgettable immersion into Spanish culture!
Tour of Born, an old but popular district
The walking tour starts with in Born, an oasis of tranquillity located next to Las Ramblas and La Barceloneta, two popular and busy areas of the city.
Along with an experienced guide, you will visit a trendy neighbourhood and its centrepiece, the Santa Maria del Mar cathedral, an icon of Catalan architecture. We will also see the Born Cultural Centre, where there are some well-preserved, interesting architectural remains from Roman times. Great for learning about the city’s history!
Flamenco show in Barcelona
After visiting Born we will head to the Baroque period Palacio de Dalmases, a building from the 17th century used as a meeting point for the aristocracy in Barcelona.
This is where we will watch an intimate Flamenco show. You will see at first hand the artists’ overcoming emotions through this touching song and dance. A unique show that we recommend on your trip to Spain.
A tapas dinner to round off the perfect night
After the show we will go to one of the best tapas and pinchos restaurants in the city. It serves bite-sized mouthfuls accompanied by a drink; you’ll soon fill up after a few of these. Some of the most famous tapas are ‘torttilla de patatas’ (potato tortilla), Iberian cold cuts and ‘pulpo a la gallega’ (Galician octopus).
If you want this magnificent experience on your trip to Barcelona, just visit. Enjoy the Spanish ambience, cuisine and culture to the max!
