Other Seville Flamenco Shows

Seville is considered by some to be the home of Flamenco, and there are multiple shows and venues where you can watch this historic dance. Here are a selection of the best Flamenco shows in Seville

History and Overview of Seville Flamenco Museum

The museum was first opened in 2006 by the famous Spanish flamenco dancer, Cristina Hoyos, in an old 18th century traditional Spanish building – Casa de Palacio(Palace House).

The museum was set up with intention to ‘preserve and celebrate the profound cultural heritage of flamenco‘ with Cristina Hoyos still working as ‘artistic director’ having a strong influence on both the museum exhibitions and the nightly shows.

The museum is spread over 4 different floors, with much of the historic palace restored and preserved to add to the traditional atmosphere.

There are 4 main sections to visit within the museum:

Patio

The patio section is where you will find the ‘main stage’ of the Flamenco museum. Here is where the live shows take place, in a beautiful and traditional Spanish courtyard. Just off this is the museum shop as well as a dance hall/studio where educational workshops and Flamenco lessons take place!

1st Floor

The first floor is the main area to discover the history and culture of Flamenco Dancing. Through the use of electronic touch screen monitors and beautifully restored displays you can learn about the influences, objects and costumes used in Flamenco dancing. There is even a giant screen to immerse yourself within an actual flamenco choreography!

2nd Floor

The second floor of the museum is dedicated to the temporary exhibitions that are offered throughout the year. Furthermore it houses a collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures that celebrate the art of Flamenco.

Basement

The basement is a fairly unique part of the museum, and really shows off historical part of the Palace building, with restored Roman stone walls and artefacts. It’s generally used more for events and gatherings, and large parts are often closed off from public viewing.
