Enthralling, engaging and a delight on the senses. A flamenco show in spain is simply unmissable. Take a jacket though, gets very cold in there, I think they keep it that way to keep the hard working artists cool.

Amazing show and food!! I was very impressed with the overall value and the Sangria was some of the best I’ve had. The setting is inside a cool village and access to the village is included.

Just wonderful experience. Close to the stage. Drinks are fairly priced. The dance performance is packed full of power!!

Great sunset cruise. Live music gives the whole experience a different vibe

Great time. Met cool people asking the way and our host was great.
