This sanctuary of flamenco first opened as a tablao (a place where flamenco is performed) in the spring of 1911. At that time, people who were a part of the great flamenco scene met at Villa Rosa. Famous local and foreign characters came to Villa Rosa and enjoyed beautiful, endless nights of dance. Champagne, fino sherry, heels, flamenco dresses, bull-fighting debates, guitar riffs and husky vocals produced wonderful nights and dawns. Spend an evening at the Villa Rosa to experience true Spanish culture and its entertainment scene.
