About the Show

Located along the Camino de Sacromonte, Cueva de La Rocio features two different caves plus a large outdoor terrace with fabulous views of the Alhambra and Generalife. The flamenco shows of approximately 45 minutes include between six to eight different artists. Seating is on each side of the cave with the artists performing in close proximity. Spectators are able to see the show up close, typical of Zambra flamenco which characteristic of the region of Granada. This style can trace its origins to traditional gypsy wedding celebrations which were once held in the caves of Sacromonte.

Cueva de La Rocio was one of the first venues of its kind in the Sacromonte quarter of Granada. Founded by Don Andres Maya Fajardo and Doña Rocio Fernandez Bustamante in the early 50's, the cave remains under the direction of the Maya family, a prominent name in the world of flamenco. In recent years Cueva de La Rocio has had the pleasure of receiving many famous visitors including the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, as well as the Kings of Spain, Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia who visited with former President of the United States, Bill Clinton.

The flamenco show in Cueva de La Rocio includes a drink or dinner. For the 22:00 show there are ticket options with transportation (round trip) and a panoramic visit, including collection from city center locations (direct pickup from some hotels along the route is possible) and a walking tour through the Albayzín, the former Arab quarter known for its narrow streets, tranquil plazas and views of the Alhambra and Generalife. The walking tour takes places either before or after the show. Currently the transport/tour option is not offered due to the pandemic situation. The option of the show with dinner includes a fixed price menu featuring typical dishes from Granada. The menu includes two courses to choose from, dessert and drink. Dining is inside one of the caves or on the terrace during the spring and summer (weather permitting).

Reviews

It was a fantastic night. The place is a great venue for flamenco.You are sitting so close to dancers so more than watching you are living it.I recommend strongly.
The place is a great venue for flamenco. The whitewashed cavern creates a very authentic space where performances are very intimate, you sitting right next to the dancers. I’ve watched quite a few flamenco shows but this one felt like it was the best one in terms of authenticity. Loved it!
Skip this. It is a tourist trap. Nothing wrong with the dancers but the room configuration and flow of the show are terrible. The room/cave is very long and narrow with chairs packed all the way to the very end making it incredibly hard to watch the dancers. I was sat near the far end and ended up watching most of the show through my phone to get a better angle. Extremely uncomfortable. We walked to the show and arrived at the same time as a large tour bus. From that moment on, the evening felt false. The free drink is the cherry on top. There is no need for it (50 min show) and it interrupts the entire show to take the order, distribute the drinks, then clear the glasses. Very unnecessary.
People recommend this but the experience felt very underwhelming. 1) you can’t choose where to seat 2) the bouncer/organizer felt like a military leader (tiene mala leche?) 3) the seats are so tiny that it felt like seating in a kindergarten classroom, we were all so cramped 4) they kept on talking amongst themselves 5) mostly clicking shoes that I felt like it lacked “arte” 6) the blue lights didn’t really help set a Flamenco vibe All in all: it felt very disorganized 😭 like they were just practicing for the show. It didn’t seem worth it for 25 euros even if it included a drink. There are better options out there.
This is one of the places that you will remember forever.. Flamenco with a hint of Granada's travelers becomes an exciting and emotional performance.. Through movement, dance and music, they tell the stories of women whose hearts are falling apart, who bravely face challenges, about passion and difficult life decisions.. An extraordinary place worth visiting to leave a piece of your heart there.
It was a unique experience. The only thing I didn’t like was that the chairs in the rooms were too tiny and close to each other. My back started to hurt at some point!
