From Cadiz to Seville
the ultimate journey to the roots of flamenco
This is a journey to flamenco, which follows in the footsteps of those who left “El Planeta” or “El Fillo” two centuries ago when they went to Triana to sing in the taverns and singing cafés of the Andalusian capital.
You begin your journey by the sea, in the three-thousand-year-old city of El Mellizo and Chano Lobato, Cadiz, where you will take a very special guided tour of this charming city. You will also visit San Fernando where a flamenco singer awaits you to take you through the flamenco of the island, reminding you of the flamenco legend and visiting the legendary “Venta de Vargas”. Not to forget Jerez de la Frontera, capital of the fortified wine, land of horses, and one of the cities in the world where flamenco is most strongly lived.
On the way to Seville, we find two cities very connected by families and styles; Utrera and Lebrija where you can live the memory of one of the most racial and direct singers that flamenco has given us: Inés Bacán.
And our final destination is the magnificent and flamenco city of Seville to enjoy its neighborhoods as their ancestors did, by flamenco experience.
