If you are looking for an intense Flamenco show in Seville consider the Casa del Flamenco in the Santa Cruz neighbourhood (see map below). Here you can watch a duo of Flamenco dancers dancing solo and together. Go early if you want to get a front row seat although all seats are up close and personal in this venue a 15th century palatial residence. The acoustics in the main courtyard where the action takes place are incredible. No need for microphones or speakers. The musicians and singing artists were great and the dance was spectacular. Flamenco consists of cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and jaleo, which refers to the vocalizations and rhythmic sounds of palmas (handclapping) and pitos (finger snapping) that encourage performers to continue or step it up a notch. It was an experience not to be missed in Seville. Highly recommended. And when the show is over you are in a great spot to hit the tapas bars nestled in the maze of cobbled streets in Santa Cruz which is also just steps from La Giralda.
