Venta El Gallo offers stunning views of La Alhambra, the centrepiece of Granada. In addition to great dancing, they provide an authentic and unforgettable cave experience and have delicious Sangria! We recommend the night show when the performers come alive.
Just off of historic Plaza Nueva, you’ll find La Alborea. This tablao is perfect for enjoying a show after exploring the city!
