One of the best places in Spain to experience the country's bullfighting and flamenco traditions is Seville. Travelers who wish to explore a city that is filled with Spanish history and allure may look no further than Andalucía's capital in the southern part of the nation, according to Frommer's.
Several bars and eateries host flamenco demonstrations late at night in an effort to present local flavor to new visitors. If one can find it, the Carboneria tucked inside Seville's barrio neighborhood hosts free flamenco dancing, guitar playing and singing.
Not only does Seville boast elegant flamenco displays, the city also has a unique dance in itself called Sevillanas. This Spanish-style line dance is cherished by locals and is mostly seen during festivals. The rhythm and stomping is similar to flamenco, but the routine moves faster and the steps are always almost the same. Many studios and private instructors throughout the city offer classes to teach the basics of this partner dance.
Seville's Plaza de Toros is one of the largest and busiest bullfighting rings in Spain, says The Sydney Morning Herald. Tournaments and demonstrations take place year round. Tickets can be bought at the ring or through small agencies on the street for fairly affordable prices.
