During your stay in Barcelona, it would be great to enjoy a night of flamenco. There are several places where you can watch a performance. The one that we tried was Palacio del Flamenco. The show was fascinating and the duration was good enough, not so short and not too long to become boring. The show takes about an hour and a drink is included in the price of 37 Euro per person. There are other options like dinner and show together. You can check details from the website link provided. I also uploaded a video from the flamenco night.
Address: Balmes 139
Directions: Close to Av. Diagonal
Not wanting to leave Barcelona without experiencing the Flamenco, we asked our concierge to make us a reservation at the only one nearby that was open on Sunday evening, Tablao Cordobes.
We took a taxi to La Rambla, then had to wait outside the building until the first show concluded. Lining up and eager to be seated, we had opted just for the show and not the dinner beforehand.
A tv screen at the entrance gave us a hint of what was waiting for us once inside, as we watched individuals perform this energetic dance. After climbing the stairs and checking in, we were led to a petite room crammed with chairs in front of a small stage. Glasses of wine were passed around and the program began.
The dancers gave it their all, the audience cheered and a standing ovation was granted. What an evening! Please be sure to watch the video accompanying my Barcelona page. Reservations can be made on line.

One of my greatest memories of Spain was the Flamenco dancing. I went to a hole in the wall in barcelona...and for $20...they had nonstop dancing. 5 different acts...all different...and just amazing. I could go fly back tomorrow just to experience the flamenco again...
Try not to miss it while you're there...
For a student discounted rate of if i remember correctly 15 euro, one drink included, you can see an amazing group of performers sing and dance to flamenco music!
