How to get to Tablao de Carmen
Metro Espanya(Green Line,L3)and(Red Line,L1)
Car parking near Tablao de Carmen close to Magic Fountain of Montjuïc
The flamenco show lasted some 75-90 minutes and involved a guitarist,3 singers and 6 or 7 dancers.It was,as I understand it,more serious and'genuine'than the typical Costa Flamenco Night.
Our only disappointment was that we'd left the camcorder in the apartment as I had assumed that we would not be allowed to use it whereas this seemed to be perfectly acceptable.
The only slight flaw in the whole evening was our inability to get a taxi when we came out of the Spanish Village at about 23:00.However,the walk down the hill to Plaza d'Espanya(where there were taxis aplenty)was not a problem as the night was warm and dry.

The one question we receive more than any other to our website is"Where can I see an authentic flamenco show in Barcelona?".The word"authentic"in this sense implies a quality performance that is a genuine representation of the art of flamenco,rooted in history of Andalusia.As you will discover Tablao Cordobés meets all these criteria.
