About the Show

Cuevas Los Tarantos is located within a former cave home in the Sacromonte neighborhood of Granada. Founded in 1972 by Don Jose and Dona Concepcion Martin Quesada Maya Maya, the cave was transformed into a special venue for Zambra style flamenco, typical of the region of Granada. Today the venue remains family run and now includes three different caves. The nightly flamenco shows continue to feature Zambra, the regional, family style of flamenco which at one time was reserved for gypsy weddings only. And on many nights just as the show concludes, a few lucky spectators are chosen by the dancers to get on their feet and join in the dance and celebration.

Ticket options include the flamenco show with a drink or dinner featuring traditional Granadan cuisine. The fixed price, seasonal menu includes a first and second course as well as dessert and beverage. If chosen, the option for transportation (round trip and only available for the 22:30 show) includes pickup from city center locations (direct pickup from some hotels along the route is possible) and a brief panoramic visit to the Mirador San Nicolas with wonderful views of the Alhambra. The route follows the narrow streets of the Albayzín. This former Arab quarter includes typical Carmens, private homes in Granada with terraces that overlook the Alhambra.

Over the years many important figures from city and province have performed in Las Cuevas Los Tarantos: Luis Heredia "El Polaco", Morenito de Íllora and the singer Chonchi Heredia are just a few examples. Las Cuevas "Los Tarantos" has also enjoyed spontaneous visits from artistas such as Paquito Amaya, Vitorino de Pinos, Julio Terremoto, La Porrona, La Coneja, Bienvenido Maya y Guzmán Albea. All have come to perform and enjoy a unique venue that only a city such as Granada can offer.

Reviews

I have limited experience with flamingo, so my judgement is subjective. The performance was intense and passionate. The venue is small so you are very close to the performance. Impressive. A side note, we had the dinner. The service was good, food was average, but the pork was very tasty.
If you want to see flamenco dancers, this is definitely the place. The musicians and dancers are simply amazing. Word of advice, don’t clap along with the dancers and turn off the flash on your cameras so you don’t distract them. Enjoy the show!
We walk uphill to get to the cave but you’ll probably do better taking a taxi. The place is kind of small and not fancy at all but feels genuine. We sat across the musicians, who were really good. There were two sets of performers (two dancers, 1 singer, 1 guitar player). We got one free drink each with our ticket (we chose Sangria). The show went a little over an hour.
We joined the show tonight after checking the reviews and we feel like we were at a different show that the others! What we have seen were four dancers who each “danced” for a couple of minutes and then in between there were long periods of guitar solo with a bit of singing. All dancers hardly shown anything - they just stomped a bit and sort of moved their hands, they either have no skill or cant be bothered to show it. It was super boring. Also, there was an old lady dancer who constantly kept walking away from the stage and looked super angry. At one point she also gossiped to some Spanish audience about some tourist/audience members in a nasty way. But the biggest issue was that there simply almost no dancing, no skill, no passion… just boredom.
You have to be there to feel it! Even though it's made for tourists, the artists are actually really good and the experience is unique!
We felt very welcome. The show and atmosphear is authentic. In a gipsy cave you will enjoy good flamenco, a drink or a dinner if you want . Highly reccomended!!!
