Sevilla is to Flamenco what Flamenco is to Seville. A city and an art that go hand in hand for some centuries. If Andalusia is the capital of flamenco, Seville is maybe the center of this art.. Seville is a city fully of corners, “tablaos” and bars where you can breathe this flamenco atmosphere every day.
While maybe the best flamenco can be enjoyed every year throughout the month of September, during the Flamenco Biennial of Seville, the city offers its inhabitants and visitors good flamenco shows throughout the year and in general, good quality shows. It is difficult to name all the clubs, bars, associations, schools and other places where you can find flamenco in this city.
