Where is the best place for shows? And I have read in a few places that Madrid/Barcelona stay up all night (cuz of the heat of the day) so does that mean it will easy to get bus transport back to the hotel? And would the shows be better in Madrid/Sevilla/and-or Barcelona?

Re: Flamenco

by AsturArcadia

No idea on flamenco, but (a) many municipalities throughout the country run all-night bus or train services when there are local fiestas, to deter drink+car driving and (b) those of us who have to work for a living (the majority of the population not on holiday) go to bed at reasonable hours of the evening and get up early in the morning! Cows have to be milked, trains and buses have to be driven, coal has to be mined, and furnaces in steelworks have to be fuelled!

Sevilla! The birthplace of flamenco is Andalucia. I had the chance to see a flamenco show in Sevilla years ago and it was a great experience. Most large cities in Spain stay up til the wee hours so transport back to the hotel won't be an issue.

Re: Flamenco

by Belsaita

it is really fun how Spain is perceived abroad. Yes of course we party all night long and it's always hot during the day.... ;o))

What is true is that we tend to have dinner late especially when we go out and the cities are still very lively until past midnight. But as said above, most people has to get up very early (and very very few are lucky enough to have a siesta if not when on holidays!!)

As said there are night buses (in cities of a few millions of inhabitants, more used by workers than for party-goers during weekdays). In Barcelona the metro runs all night on Saturdays. Depending on where are you going it may be more convenient to take a taxi back to your hotel.

Regarding Flamenco... if you are going to Sevilla (or anywhere in Andalucia, like Granada, Córdoba, Jerez...) go there. Is the region where Flamenco belongs. If you only are visiting Madrid and Barcelona, better Madrid (but bear in mind it will be a touristy thing).

Travel Tips for Madrid


by Urzu

Ok, so if you are staying in Madrid for a longer time, or you are just a movie-freak (like myself!), but your Spanish is so so (because you know, everything in Spain is dubbed). You do have a few cinemas that play films in its original version and then with Spanish subtitles. It's another option on what to do on a lazy day around the city! A couple of these cinemas are:

*Cines Princesa - Calle Princesa, 3 (it's right next to the Plaza de España Metro station)

*Ciné Cité Manoteras - Avenida Manoteras, 40

*Renoir Cuatro Caminos - Calle Raimundo Fernández Villaverde, 10 (Cuatro Caminos Metro station)

* Yelmo Cines Ideal - Calle Dr. Cortezo, 6 (Tirso de Molina Metro station, very close to Sol as well)

VINO ESPAÑOL- Spanish Wine

by Lorro

This tip is for a great new website in English called CataVino. It has lots of information on Spanish and Portuguese wines. Includes some nice links and tasting notes and lots more.
Since Spain is known for its wine and is now being rediscovered, why not learn something about it before coming?

Avila is a world heritage site. It is famous for its 2,5 km long townwall. Its also known for its excellent roasts and veal T-bones. You have to taste these in a fine restaurant with high province cuisine. The townwalls date back to the middle ages, guarding the town against enemies and epidemics. It has nine gates of which the gate de Alcazar is the most spectacular. The cathedral is gothic style, build into the townwall. Its like a church fortress. The main chapel has a magnificent reredos by Vasco de la Zarza and paintings by Berruguete and Juan de Borgoña. Iglesia de San Juan is a temple build in roman style with gothic elements. The sanctuary is build in renaissance style. The church is a national monument. Avilla looks great at night when the walls are lightened and you have phantasic views over the mountains at sunset.

Nightlife For The Young And Old

by JakeBlues about Capitol (Bar Dance Club)

If you like to dance, be out with friends or just want to go out and have a good, the nightlife in Madrid is the place to be. Take a nap before you go out, you will need it. The clubs don't get started till 11:00 PM, buts starts kicken around 1:00AM and ends when the sun comes up. Most Clubs require that you gress nice. No Jeans or Tennis Shoes.
