Flamenco in the "Valencian La Alhambra"
The small town of Anna in the south of Valencia hides a hidden treasure: the Palace Condes de Cervellón, or as it’s known locally: “La Alhambra Valenciana”. For more information click here.
Its Arabic patio and halls, stunningly decorated with splendid ceramic mosaics, coffered ceilings and plaster mouldings recreate the gorgeous world of the Muslim rulers who settled here in in the early twelfth century.
Can you imagine the truly luxurious experience of watching the magic of Flamenco in a palace? The palace itself is spectacularly beautiful, and in a stunning setting. If you discover the magic and “el duende” within, we promise you it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.Please note: minimum group size 20, daytime.

Get up close to the artists in an old bodega
Enjoy the unbeatable atmosphere of an ancient bodega which still conserves much of the old wine-making machinery. The bodega is in Ontinyent, south of Valencia.
It’s an authentic setting for a full day’s immersion amongst the artists from around 11 a.m. to 17.00 p.m. in a culture which is often difficult to get close to. You can go and see Flamenco in large theatres or on small intimate stages, known as tablaos, and it’s always marvellous but where does Flamenco have its roots? Where was it born? Flamenco was born in families, amongst friends, in people’s day-to-day lives, where its cradle is the heart and there is no stage, and that you don’t see often. You have to belong to the culture to really live it and feel it and our experience is designed to give you the chance to do just that. Immerse yourself in a culture with genuine soul, take part in Flamenco workshops to learn the chords, the steps and iconic hand clapping rhythms, but more importantly you’ll laugh, chat, dance and have a wonderful time amongst true Flamenco artists in an incomparable setting. The whole day will be capped off with a barbecue in a nearby restaurant.

Flamenco wine tasting
This experience is more for lovers of the excellent wines that are so intertwined with Flamenco. While the experience only lasts a morning, its setting is a pristine paradise.
Bodegas los Frailes is a bodega with a long family history of wine growing and making stretching back to 1771, set in the marvellous country around Els Alforins, known as the “Tuscany of Valencia”, in the province of Valencia.
The bodega makes wines which are truly an experience for your senses, wines which reflect the valley where they are from, which is blessed with the perfect soil and conditions for wine growing. The wines are imbued with the personality of the family, who are all dedicated and passionate about wine making.
The experience is a guided tour led by a member of the family itself and takes in the vineyards, the old bodega and the modern wine-making facility, and culminates in a wine tasting with commentary in the sunlit tasting room known as “un mar de viñas”. From here, look out over the greens and ochres of the surrounding countryside as you discover the delights of a fine wine to the accompaniment of a Flamenco guitarist in the background. The tasting is completed with a range of specially selected and lovingly prepared tapas. A delight for the senses and a truly sublime experience.
Please note: The experience is only available Saturday morning from 11.30 to 13.30. Grape picking takes place between August and October, so the experience is available from November to July.
