Cuevas Los Tarantos has two main caves within the same space and two secondary caves, also within the Sacromonte district, that are enabled only for groups or when the seating capacity of the main caves has been completed. All these caves are primed for the performances but they are also perfectly prepared for restaurant service during the performance. In this case, the performance will take place at the back of the cave where there is a small theater box prepared for just this occasion. The restaurant service provides typical Andalusia gastronomy very well prepared, while the spectator enjoys the view of the many family mementos that hang on the wall; fruit of a lifetime dedicated with loving care to this unique space.

Each night Cuevas Los Tarantos presents a “Zambra Gitana”, performance which is composed of three main dances: the alboreá, the cachucha and the mosca, all performed with passion and great care by 10 of the most renowned artists of Granada, 5 in each Cave, reaching up to 12 in any given moment. In each showing Los Tarantos offers a unique situation for the visitors: Once their performance is over, the artists swap caves which allows the spectator the opportunity of enjoying two quality performances in the same night, or in other words, the spectator gets the opportunity to enjoy the artistic work of all the Taranto artists. As is customary in the Zambras, the dancing is done on the ground under which hides a wooden floor, the “tablao”, in the center of the cave. Here the artists unfold their art as the spectators sit surrounding the artists watching this experience with an up close and intimate view. The spectator has an excellent view from any seating, the lighting is discreet and well designed to give a delicate ambience and the technological back up and amplification is perfectly adjusted to get the best out of the cave´s acoustics and soften the sounds of the dancers tapping.

Without a doubt one of the elements to emphasize here is, even being one of the busiest “tablaos” in Granada, the promoters and their team continue to bestow upon the guests a pleasant treatment. There is also a hotel transportation pick-up and return service; clients should keep in mind that this transportation service will also pick up other passengers to the “tablao” en route to Sacromonte. The transportation service will take the guests on a small tour through the old Albaicin and the San Nicolas viewpoint and have on board a dedicated and well versed guide that will inform the passengers of the type of performance they are about to see, the artists that will be performing, and interesting historical background of the locale itself.

For 30 years the Martin-Maya family has provided the authenticity of this artistic expression unique to Granada to the city and to all its visitors. The world of flamenco is beholding to this family for having provided a source for rising stars and worldwide established artists.

Great figures of flamenco have performed on these stages such as Luis Heredia "El Polaco", Morenito de Íllora or the singer Chonchi Heredia. These artists, through their dance and song, inspired artists such as Manolillo Liñán or Luis de Luis. Other famous artists from the world of flamenco have performed here as well, such as: Vitorino de Pinos, Guzmán Albea, Julio Terremoto (singers), La Porrona, La Coneja, Bienvenido Maya, El Gabriel (dancers) and Antonio El Chispita, Pepe, and Paquito Amaya (guitar players).
