Cueva La Rocio (Cave Flamenco Show in Granada, Spain)

One of the “must do/see experiences” in Granada is a Cave Flamenco show. It is a touristy thing to do for sure (everyone that’s there to watch will be tourists), but I personally think it’s still worth seeing it!

Flamenco is a type of a Spanish dance along with Spanish folk music. It is famous for the passionate dance moves.

You can see Flemenco shows in most of the major cities in Spain, but I decided to see it in Granada as Granada is famous for Flemenco shows in a cave.

The Flemenco show I went to was called “Cueva La Rocio” – it is a family run business and also famous, because Michelle Obama came to watch the show when she was in Granada. Click here to see Michelle Obama’s picture at Cueva La Rocio.

  • Price: 20 euros (includes 1 drink – can be a non-alcohol or an alcohol drink)
    • They also have dinner + show packages, but I think it’s better to have dinner elsewhere since there’s so many good tapas restaurants in Granada!

  • I purchased my tickets through a tour agency, but advance tickets can also be purchased online here (their official website is not available in English, but if you use google chrome and run google translator, you can see it in English and book online easily)
