There’s something simply magical about seeing a Flamenco show in a gypsy cave in Sacromonte. It’s about as authentic as it gets, right?

Allow me to start off by explaining; Sacromonte is extremely authentic. A “barrio” made up of cave-houses, it’s historically known as the Gypsy neighborhood. These cave-residing Gypsies have been born and raised with Flamenco in their family bloodline.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to these Flamenco Gypsy caves! These oh-so-popular cave venues have pretty much been turned into museums, where Flamenco artists come to play for groups of tourists who’ve been bused in from their downtown hotels, like a herd of sheep.
