Watch flamenco with the people of Seville
Watching flamenco in Seville won’t win you any prizes for originality. However, finding the real deal is harder than you might think. The city is awash with tourist-trap extravaganzas – huge red dresses and perfected routines – but flamenco auténtico happens in the corners of shady bars, where maestros turn up in jeans and improvise their magic. Tapas bar La Madriguera de Mai looks like a student haunt, but every Friday and Saturday night, its tiny stage hosts flamenco that’ll make you weep.
