Great show - very powerful and a terrific experience. We were two families and adults and children alike were entranced. Good view of the stage from all tables. We also ate a meal and very much enjoyed the food. It would have been easy for them to have made this secondary to the dance but it was delicious. The staff were quick and discreet in serving so it didn’t distract from the show. I have no idea how this compares to other flamenco shows in Grenada but we were very glad we came. We chose it thanks to other reviewers so wanted to pass the favour on.

Takk for en fantastisk dag! Din kjærlighet til Granada og entusiasme for historien smittet over på oss:-) Og for noen omgivelser vi syklet gjennom ….snødekte fjell, grønne åssider, panoramautsikt, trange smug, majestetiske bygninger, grotter, glade mennesker, musikk.., Og ja, vi kommer så klart tilbake!
