With your entrance ticket in hand, head inside Tablao el Cardenal, a renowned Cordoba flamenco joint on the site of the old archbishop’s palace, near Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral. While flamenco is often thought to have originated in Seville, Cordoba’s flamenco scene is thriving and some of Spain’s best known dancers are from the city.
Head to the outdoor patio where your show takes place or alternatively, head inside the site’s historical auditorium if you visit during the winter months.
Order your drink from the bar and then take your seat to enjoy the show! Watch five of Cordoba’s best dancers perform a fiery flamenco on stage, exuding passion for their flamboyant form of art. All three of the essential aspects of the dance are expertly demonstrated during the show: cante, baile and guitarra (songs, dancing and guitar music). Marvel at the dancers’ quick-step footwork, and clap along to the music performed by the venue’s musicians and singers.
After the show has ended, you can stay inside the venue enjoying more drinks (own expense), if you wish.
