The first romantic travellers, probably our firsts  tourists, left their mark in their writings of the suprise and enchantment produced, in them, by the exotism of a passionate and hospitable Andalucía, that had in flamenco a common denominator of the most authentic popular expression and different in respect to other peoples.

In it, as time went by, flamenco has passed by various states of 'gracia' until arriving at the actual moment of great diffusion and international and national recognition. More than 20 million tourists arrive at Andalucía every year attracted by different motivations, the sun and beach, golf, congresses, conventions, incentives, nature, monuments, gastronomy, rural world, health, etc.;and nearly all have a reference (although it may be vague) or even have lived (although not authentically) flamenco.

There are still very few who, in a illustrated and planned form, come to Andalucia to enjoy the flamenco tourism. It is our intention that those who wish to know flamenco in Andalucia by tourism, find in this site, ordered and varied references that help you know by a incipient form, of the great cultural and festive treasure, that flamenco supposes.

Our pretension is to offer the traveller who plans to visit Andalucía, to those who are travelling through or simply living in it, a useful and colourful tool, to start to know the history of flamenco and to learn to differentiate one style from another, and at the same time dispose of the necessary addresses and activities that favour, in many cases, a first contact with Flamenco in Andalucía

Flamenco Comany Sanchez - Cortes presents the show Flamenco Lasts in Time  “Flamenco  Perdura en el Tiempo”. Our Flamenco show is full of life and color, moments of intensity and passion. In short: “We are Flamenco” and will be forever.

Our family Sanchez - Cortez has presented flamenco for four generations in its purest form protecting it's history and traditions. As generations come and go flamenco will always be at the centre of our lives. It is the life we live, our life and we feel a need to transmit this to the others. Our show is a pure expression of ourselves from beginning to end. We present ourselves without artifice to allow our audiences to see us as we really are - genuine and free.
