Show in a cave in Sacromonte © Turismo de Granada
The best way to feel the true cultural roots of Granada is to visit its flamenco clubs. There are numerous areas where you can see this type of live music show. At all of them you will be able to feel the excitement of the Spanish guitar, see typical flamenco costumes, learn what “taconeo” (flamenco tap dance) is all about, and enjoy the traditional flamenco festival known as “zambra”.
One option is to have dinner in the old town with a live show included. You can choose from an open-air courtyard where you can have a drink and listen to the music beneath the stars, to an ancient white cave decorated with crafts, where flamenco singers and dancers in their flounced dresses will perform for you until the early hours. Many of these venues are concentrated on the Camino del Sacromonte road, at the heart of the typical flamenco neighbourhood of Sacromonte.
