Palau Dalmases-Espai Barroc

Authentic Flamenco and Opera in a Baroque Palace

Located a short walk from the Picasso Museum on Carrer Montacada in the neighbourhood of La Ribera, like most of the other houses on the street, Palau Dalmases is a 16th century baroque palace built by rich merchants when this part of Barcelona was the centre of Catalonia's commercial Mediterranean empire.

In the 18th century, the palace became the Acadèmia de les Bones Lletres and was a centre for Barcelona's intellectuals throughout the baroque period from which the interior dates.

Today the Espai Barroc is home to daily flamenco concerts at 6 pm, 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm with drink included and opera recitals at 11 o'clock every Thursday.

As the video below shows, not only is the environment wonderful but the standard of the local musicians is a testament to Barcelona's reputation as one of the great flamenco centres in Spain.

Video of the Flamenco Show

The flamenco show at the Espai Barroc is given by a basic traditional combo of cante (voice), baile (dance), cajón (box percussion) and guitar.

The quality of the musicians clearly shows why flamenco in Barcelona has such an excellent reputation.
