Casa de la Memoria Flamenco, Sevilla (Seville)

Address C/ Ximénez de Enciso, 28 Map, Tel 954 560670 Call, Notes Two shows nightly. Prices compare favorably with other venues

Casa de la Memoria presents flamenco for the aficionado rather than the tourist. Located in the courtyard of a private house in the Barrio de Santa Cruz, a small stage is surrounded by flowers, candles, and no more than three rows of seating. No food or drinks are served, and the intimate environment gives you a sense of closeness with the performers and other audience members.

Shows sell out regularly, especially in the summer, so purchase tickets in advance.

While the dancing is enthralling, this intimate environment is well suited only to children who can sit quietly through the duration of the performance.

    Thanks for such a terrific site with such useful info. I'm committing it all to memory! We're planning a three week trip to Spain in August and though most of our time will be spent in a rented villa in a small village, we will be spending several days each in Madrid, Sevilla and Cordoba. Will our 17 month old be welcome at late evening dinners in restaurants or tapas bars? What about a flamenco performance? She'd love it, but would she be welcome? Thanks for any advice!!

    What a wonderful tip! Your 17 month old will be welcome in all but the fanciest restaurants. People were always super accommodating with our kids.

    Bringing a toddler or small child to a flamenco performance is more challenging. You wont want her to disturb the other audience members. If you think that she can sit through the performance, or sleep in your arms than I think it is ok, but otherwise it would probably be too challenging. If you are determined to see some Flamenco, why not ask around about Flamenco schools and see if you can drop by and watch while a class is in session?

    Good luck!
