Flamenco is one of the most important musical components of Spain’s rich cultural history and folklore, and equally combines the feeling, expression and identity of a universal art.
Andalucía simply burns with life, colour, and romance. It is a place of music and dancing, of plucked guitar strings, and the snapping of fingers, clicking castanets, and the stamping of feet, all of which mould together to create this wonderful vibrant & fiery culture known as flamenco.
The most popular tourist shows, that differ from traditional flamenco, are choreographed with frilly voluminous spotted dresses derived from a style of dress worn for the annual Fair in Seville and can be seen in shows all around Andalusia.
Don´t miss the FREE performance that takes place in Plaza Virgen de la Peña, Mijas Pueblo every Wednesday at 12 noon.
