Corral de la Morería, was started by Manuel del Rey in 1956, and is the most known tablao flamenco in the world.

Throughout its history, Corral de la Morería flamenco show has witnessed the perfomance of some of the finest professionals of this discipline, including: Pastora Imperio, La Chunga, María Albaicín, El Güito, Mario Maya, Manuela Vargas, Lucero Tena, Isabel Pantoja, Antonio Gades and Blanca del Rey, not to mencion an endless numbre of singers, guitarist and dancers.

It's location is priviledged, as it is in the centre of Madrid - next to the Royal Palace, in the main historic quarters of the city -, its decoration, the arabic corbels and streetlamps dating from the 18th and 19th C recreate a setting reminiscent of the original tablao flamenco, that takes you back in time.

Considered as the "Cathedral of flamenco art" of Spain, this establishment is frequently visited by well-known celebrities visiting Madrid, therefore don't be surprised should you find yourself seated by the King of Spain, Government Presidents or famous international artists.

  1. Yes that IS interesting! Maybe about the time Captain Apache and Bad Man's River were shot? I know some of the indoor/studio shoots for those films where done in Madrid. And Lee recorded some songs in Madrid for Captain Apache and his European fan club there.
