Tablao El Cardenal

Calle Buen Pastor, 2, Cordoba , Spain , 14003

The Basics

Close to the Mezquita, in the city’s Jewish Quarter, the 25-year-old Tablao El Cardenal offers what some consider to be the best of Cordoba flamenco in a ultra-traditional setting. During fall and winter, shows take place in the indoor auditorium, while in spring and summer the performances move to the courtyard, which is emblematic of this southern city known for its patios.

The 1.5- to 2-hour performances typically include several dancers who perform alongside guitarists and singers. The show also features various types of flamenco from different time periods, includingsevillanas,allegrías,seguilladas, and more.

1 thing that was a must see for myself when planning my visit to Cordoba was to see a Flamenco Show. Something i had always wanted to see and i definitely wasn't left disappointed. From the wonderful setting to the beautiful dancing. The elegance of the moves and the guitar in the background was amazing. Can't help but be let mesmerized by the effort that goes into each dance. Something that i will never forget.

My family and I enjoyed the show very much. The dance is intense. It would be good to tell the audience a little about the history of flamenco and how it has evolved to today for better appreciation.

The Roman Bridge

Not far from Tablao El Cardenal, the impressive Roman Bridge traverses the Guadalquivir River. Constructed by the Romans in the early first century BC, this ancient structure features two anchoring towers and a statue of San Rafael, the patron saint of Cordoba, halfway across its span, where worshippers stop to pray or light a candle. As of 2004, the bridge is for pedestrians only.
