Tablao Flamenco El Cardenal

Get swept up in the passion and energy of traditional flamenco dances and songs at this historic venue with an outdoor patio and an intimate stage.

Tablao Flamenco El Cardenal is Córdoba’s premier venue for the time-honored traditions of flamenco. This Andalusian art form has been popularized around the world for its unique melodies and passionate movements. Enjoy an evening watching a captivating performance by some of the country’s finest flamenco professionals at this intimate venue and learn about the different styles and techniques within the traditional art form.

Enter the venue and take your place in the 50-seat auditorium, which has a stage framed by stone arches. If the weather allows, your show may take place in the tablao’s patio courtyard. Vines cascade down the whitewashed walls of the outdoor stage, making it a pretty spot to spend a balmy evening. Get ready to see some of the country’s most acclaimed artists demonstrate pure flamenco as it has been known for the last two centuries.

Nine artists take the stage to bring the art form to life. You’ll learn about cante (singing), toque (guitar playing) and baile (dancing). Feel the rhythm as you’re taken through palmas (hand clapping) and pitos (finger snapping). Watch in awe as the dancers in traditional dress take the stage and begin their highly technical and passionate performance. Lightning-quick footwork is combined with dramatic poise. Listen as the guitarists demonstrate the array of techniques used to create the flamenco sound. The artists’ repertoire includes a range of styles within flamenco, such as fandangos, bulerías, soléa and alegrías. You’ll soon see why Tablao Flamenco El Cardenal is a highly awarded institution in Córdoba, as well as the country.

Tablao Flamenco El Cardenal is located within Córdoba’s labyrinthine Old Town. Reach the venue from the city’s main railway station on foot in 15 minutes, but be sure to save some time to relish strolling in the romantic alleys. You can also reach the venue by public bus.
