I was absolutely blown away by the level of professionalism of the singer, dancers and guitarist. The raw passion they exuded during the performance was incredible! I was reluctant to attend, as I thought it would be catering for tourists, and I'm not a huge fan of dance in general, but my wife insisted, and I'm glad she did. Without exaggeration, it was the best musical performance I have ever seen, and I worked in the music business for years, and have seen hundreds of performances by very famous artists. No joke, there were tears in my eyes at the end of the performance - it was a very emotional experience, and I would recommend it to everyone visiting Granada without reservation.

The show was good. The performers were excellent, we enjoyed their performance. Although the place is quite small for the number of customers. Also make sure to ask about your assigned seat because if you book online there aren’t seat number but for some they have, so to avoid transferring from one seag to the other ask for a seat number upon entering. The drinks are also good. Thank you.

My favourite flamenco show in Granada. Looks like a tourist trap when you first get there but it’s not at all.

A true flamenco experience. Better to not take the seat in the balcony for the full experience

It was wonderful! Loved every minute! Very talented dancers.
