It might be touristy, but I think it’s the only place with flamenco for free every night, which is important if you’ve only got limited time and budget! I know what you mean about struggling to find the place in those narrow streets, for me it was even more difficult finding my way back home after a few sangrias…

Sometimes as tourists in a city it’s hard to discern the truth about a place. All I can say is we enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed the show. The drinks didn’t seem too expensive however we’re not local so I’m sure there are cheaper places in town. It was definitely cheaper than North America so that’s always a good thing in my mind. 😉

The fact we got to enjoy a show without having to pay a cover charge, could come and go as we pleased and spent the evening talking, laughing and being entertained rates it as a win in our mind.

As a Seville expat and expert, what place would you recommend as an alternative that is cheap, kid friendly and puts on a decent flamenco show? We’ll make sure to check it out next time we’re in Seville and can pass it on to anyone who reads this.

Slapdash performances, overpriced drinks, and what was once (say, 20 year ago) a cool alternative place to see flamenco has sadly turned into a tourist trap. Surprised that the writer said there were only a smattering of tourists there – these days it’s mostly full of young foreign students.

My boss when I lived in Spain recommended it to me on a visit to Seville, but I just couldn’t find it – it’s such an easy city to get lost in! Sounds really cool, though, so it’ll definitely be on my list for next time!

Original decor as well.

I have heard about this place and it is actually already on my list of things to do in Seville. Can’t wait get there and experience it for myself.
