Flamenco Tips (6)

Seville is home of flamenco, a...

Favorite thing Seville is home of flamenco, a Spanish dance rhythmed by hand claps while the dancers rock their heels incredibly quick on ‘tig-tag’ shoes. I was told the best performances are only staged in Seville. I bet those advisors could be right. The one show that I checked out was absolutely spectacular, at El Palacio Andaluz for 4 000 Ptas plus a drink and many ‘Ole’s.

I’ve got lots more to write but no matter how much more, Seville can only look gorgeous by appearance. Ascertain the lovely Seville yourself and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Sevilla has a magic...

Favorite thing Sevilla has a magic atmostphere that simply isn't found anywhere else. It is the smell of oranges and jasmine that permeates the city, the tranquility of the river and the old section of town. Michener said it has 'gracia' and that best describes it.

Fondest memory Flamenco music and dancing, El Gallo consistently has high quality performers and not quite as touristy of an atmosphere

Catch A Fiery Flamenco Show At A Local Tablao!

Favorite thing Yes, I highly recommend that you catch a fiery Flamenco show at a local Tablao (flamenco bar)!

The Tablao we patronized is called - El Patio Sevillano located in the Barrio de Santa Cruz district.

El Patio Sevillano is a traditional tablao decorated with traditional Andalucian patios (just like the circle seats in some of our local cinemas/ theaters). Sip on a glass of sangria (a lovely Spanish alcoholic concoction) and be entertained by the clacking heels of these passionate Flamenco dancers.

After a while, even I felt like joining them on stage. Yes, I don't mind being the feminine answer to Spain's #1 Flamenco dancer - Joaquin Cortes.

P.S. If you like the 'Gypsy Kings' brand of music, then I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy one of these shows.

There is lots to see in...

Favorite thing There is lots to see in Sevilla. For example, Plaza de Espana is a wonderful place to visit. And of course you cannot miss the cigare factory where the famous Carmen used to work. But after seeing all this the most famous building in Sevilla is, I suppose, the cathedral. It is declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. It was built on the location of the high mosque of the Sevilla, demolished in the 15th century and for many centuries was the biggest religious monument in all of Christendoom. It contains five aisles of Gothic style with a large transept, site of the main chapel, a construction which boasts a magnificant altarpiece and a Plateresque Grill. The cathedral was designed by Alonso Martinez, Simon de Colonia and Juan Gil de Ontanon. The works were finished off in 1506. The cathedral also houses sepulcher of Christopher Columbus.

Fondest memory I went to see flamenco, the local folk dancing, and I loved it. If you want to enjoy fancy dancing and singing, you should visit Taplao Flamenco Los Gallos. It was a quite expensive place but well worth of money. Its address is: Plaza de Sta.Cruz, 11, Tel. 954 216 981. You should book yourself in advance because it was always sold out. Visit www.infor.es/gallos.
