Corral de la Morería

 

At number 17 Calle de la Morería, in the heart of Madrid de los Austrias, it is located this emblematic flamenco tablao. Traditional history and the history of flamenco brought together in one place, read on!

Considered by many to be the mecca of flamenco in the capital, this is one of the oldest and most important tablaos in the city. Opened in 1956, it has accumulated more than 60 years of tradition and spectacle, and is known throughout the world. Located in an old cowshed, it soon became famous throughout the city, sharing prestige with the now disappeared Tablao Zambra.

Its fame goes back a long way. El Corral is included in the book "1.000 places to see before you die", perhaps the most famous travel book in the world, number one in the New York Times. Countless celebrities have enjoyed a flamenco evening in its rooms, such as Charlton Heston, John F. Kennedy, Nicole Kidman or Pablo Picasso.

This is how this venue has accumulated countless prizes during its existence, such as the award for "Best Flamenco Tablao in the World" at the Festival Internacional de Cante de las Minas de la Unión (International Festival of Cante de las Minas de la Unión). Every night, from Monday to Sunday, the Corral offers the most demanding flamenco shows, carefully chosen, being a reference point in the current scene of this art.

In addition, the venue has two exclusive gastronomic spaces, the Corral de la Morería and Tablao restaurants. Under these names, the Basque chef David García presents his proposals for visitors, having achieved a Michelin Star in 2019, a recognition that he revalidated in 2020 and which places the Corral also as a gastronomic reference in the capital.

Check its programme and don't miss this unique venue, full of history of the city and history of flamenco, come to La Morería!
