Why you won’t regret seeing our flamenco show in Barcelona
If you are going to visit or are visiting Barcelona at the moment, it is essential that you go to a “tablao flamenco” to see a flamenco show in Barcelona live. It is one of the most exciting experiences you can live in the city. To convince yourself, here are 13 reasons to visit Palau Dalmases and enjoy the best flamenco.
13 good reasons to enjoy our flamenco show in Barcelona
1. The best flamenco with a good wine is the perfect plan.
The ticket for Palau Dalmases, besides costing only 25€, includes a drink of your choice. You can enjoy the show at the same time you are tasting a good wine, or trying the typical drinks of Barcelona, such as Sangria or Cava.
2. Palau Dalmases: a flamenco tablao inside a baroque castle
One of the peculiarities of Palau Dalmases’ flamenco tablao is that it is located inside a 17th century baroque palace in one of the most emblematic and picturesque neighbourhoods of the city: the Born district, just a few steps from the Picasso Museum.
The area is ideal, and the palace has exquisite architecture and a long and interesting history that you can discover here.
3. An intimate and unique flamenco show in Barcelona
As it is a small palace, the space is limited, so you will be sitting a few meters away from the artists. No matter what row you sit in, you’ll always have privileged views, allowing you to watch every dance move, and listen to every breath between every note in detail. It’s an experience that will give you goosebumps!
4. Variety of daily flamenco shows
At Palau Dalmases you can enjoy the flamenco show at 3 different time schedules from Monday to Sunday: at 18h, 19:30 and 21:30. This way you can visit the city during the day and choose the best show for you, without worrying about running out of tickets. However, we recommend that you buy your ticket for Palau Dalmases in advance.
5. One of the most highly rated flamenco shows in Barcelona
We don’t say it ourselves, but the hundreds of reviews on TripAdvisor and other prestigious travel websites. Palau Dalmases is currently in thirty-fourth position for things to do in Barcelona in Tripadvisor, in addition to having obtained its Certificate of Excellence. Palau Dalmases also won the 2018 Experts Choice Awards from the TripExpert portal for two consecutive years.
6. Seeing a flamenco show in Barcelona will give you a closer look at Spanish culture
Flamenco has its origin in the 18th century in Andalusia as a result of the mixing of cultures from the area: Arab, Jewish and Gypsy. Since then it has spread throughout Spain, becoming one of the characteristic elements of Spanish culture. Visiting a “tablao flamenco” and getting to know the history of this art will make your visit to Barcelona a much fuller experience.
7. You will be able to admire true flamenco fashion in Barcelona
Do you like flamenco fashion? In a flamenco show you can see the original flamenco costumes of our dancers. You’ll see that sometimes they can be very different from what you see in shops – get ready to see pure and true flamenco!
8. Barcelona is one of the flamenco capitals
Did you know that Barcelona is, along with Andalusia and Madrid, one of the most important flamenco regions? The Andalusian immigrants brought the flamenco culture to Barcelona and turned the city into one of the most important stages of this art. Some historians even consider the city of Barcelona as the origin of the guitar used in flamenco shows.
9. Flamenco is also a World Heritage by UNESCO
In 2010, flamenco was declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Just for this reason, it is worth visiting a tablao to enjoy a live flamenco show.
10. Discover top flamenco artists in Barcelona
At Palau Dalmases we offer a quality show. This is why we have top-level dancers, musicians and singers who have performed in tablaos throughout Spain and abroad, and even in prestigious venues such as the Palau de la Música Catalana.
11. Flamenco will make you experience an endless number of sensations
Flamenco is an art with feelings at the forefront. During the one-hour-long show, you will live a thousand sensations capable of reaching the deepest part of your heart; because it is a heartbreaking art that is born from the entrails of the artists. Love, passion, sadness, anger. A whirlpool of sensations accompanied by flamenco vocals, flamenco heels, and guitar chords… Impressive!
12. Flamenco will make you feel better
Not only is flamenco dancing a great exercise that helps improve your health, but also listening to and following the rhythm of the flamenco dance is a great way to improve your body coordination. Maybe when you come back from your trip you’ll be encouraged to learn flamenco!
