How about some flamenco in Almuñécar & La Herradura for that authentic Spanish experience? If you are just visiting the area or perhaps you live here and have guest coming to stay, either way you should make some time for drinks, tapas and a flamenco show. We will share some of our favorite flamenco shows in town, which should have that local flair you are looking for.
Flamenco is a Spanish art form made up of three parts: guitar playing (“guitarra”), song (“cante”), and dance (“baile”). Flamenco originated here in the southern Spain, and has influenced by many world cultures. Originally flamenco dancing was not set to music; it was only singing and clapping of hands called “toque de palmas.” Some flamenco dancing still follows ancient tradition, but with a mix of flamenco guitars and other musical instruments. More on the history of flamenco.
