The Best Flamenco Shows in Granada

Flamenco forms a very important part of the local culture in Andalusia, with Granada being one of the most important flamenco meccas. Granada's flamenco tradition has its origins in the gypsy community in the Sacromonte neighborhood and, more specifically, in the “zambras.”

The word “zambra” comes from the Arab “zumra” which can be translated as “party.” It represents the way the gypsy community celebrated weddings in the Sacromonte neighborhood as far back as the 17th century. However, flamenco has also been influenced by the cultures that have lived in the region throughout the centuries: Moors, Jews and Christians.

If you are interested in flamenco, below you can find a some of the best tablaos and zambras offering daily shows.
