Flamenco shows in Granada take place in the caves of Sacramonte. Most guidebooks warn against visiting the touristy “shows” or tablaos on the grounds that they’re not genuine.
Feedback from our customers is generally positive and provided you go along aware that you’re attending a tourist show you’ll enjoy a good night out .
You’ll find information at your hotel reception, and often you’ll be collected and taken to the venue.
