What to expect:
The "scent" of flamenco and much more is in Seville's high-tech interactive Flamenco Museum, inspired by legendary flamenco artist Cristina Hoyos. Housed in a restored 18th-century building, minutes from the Cathedral of Seville, the museum's entrance opens into an Andalucían patio, which showcases its monthly flamenco shows and private events.
Several upstairs exhibition spaces are scented with exotic fragrances to complement the various cultures, from India to the Caribbean, that have influenced flamenco. An antique wood scent surrounds the costumes' room where the red dress worn at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony performance is on display, as are others that depict the evolution of flamenco costumes. All exhibits have touch-screen displays in six languages. An on-site shop sells first-class and reasonably priced souvenirs. Packages combine museum admission, a horse-drawn carriage ride and a tablao flamenco show (70€).
The flamenco museum in Seville also does flamenco classes. Group flamenco classes for one hour, one week or longer are offered, as are private flamenco or guitar classes (60€).
