The building which today is Palau Dalmases, home of one of the most special flamenco shows in Barcelona, is located in the neighbourhood of El Born, in Barcelona. The baroque palace was built in the 16th by rich merchants when this part of the city was the centre of Catalonia’s commercial Mediterranean empire. The gorgeous palace of baroque influence is a testimony of the artistic, politic, and cultural life of Catalunya.
In the 18th century, the palace became the Acadèmia de les Bones Lletres and was a centre for Barcelona’s intellectuals throughout the baroque period from which the interior dates.Currently, the Palau Dalmases – Espai Barroc offers visitors a unique space, isolated from the busy streets outside. Just crossing the courtyard, and seeing the impressive baroque stairways, one feels in a peaceful and classy ambient.
From Mondays to Sundays, visitors can enjoy an excellent Flamenco Show with great artists who represent the important tradition of Flamenco in Barcelona. “Cante” (singing), guitar, “bailaor” and “bailaora” (a couple of flamenco dancers), cajón, percussion… Atmosphere in the place is unique. The public sits very close to the stage where the artists perform. The power of flamenco, the strength of its performers, the beauty of the place; all together turns this into an unforgettable show.
The Espai Barroc is a unique enclave for enjoying not only flamenco shows, but Opera and Jazz nights as well, with a glass of nice and fresh cocktails, drinks, or juices made specially for you. We offer an unique and unforgettable experience. Join us and enjoy!
