Seville is one of those places capable of bringing back tradition, celebration, dance, art, sensuality and history.

The neighbourhood of Santa Cruz is one of the districts where one can undoubtedly find venues and enjoy Flamenco performances of high calibre. Here, the famous “Tablao” are numerous and spread throughout the small and characteristic streets of the city. 

Visitors may pass by the historic “Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos” (Plaza Santa Cruz 11) for its special old-fashioned atmosphere, or to “La Carbonera” (Calle Levis 18), where Flamenco is danced every Thursday evening, or to the “Casa Flamenco” (Calle Ximenez de Enciso) where it is possible to dance in a courtyard of a 15th-century palace. The “Casa de guitarra” (C. Mesón del Moro, 12), on the other hand, is a cultural centre run by Josè Luis Postigo, an international flamenco guitarist, and “La Casa de la Memoria” (Calle Cuna 6) offers incredible shows by the city’s best dancers in a courtyard of a 16th-century palace.

In short, the history, craftsmanship, culture, cuisine and cheerfulness of this beautiful city can be felt in every corner and at every moment of the day. Seville is art, colours, history, culture, and, most importantly, the cradle of Flamenco.
