Check out some Flamenco! Madrid has been listening to the best flamenco since the early 19th century and has seen the best artists triumph here. Several activities surrounding this art form continue to flourish and hundreds of dance academies such as the famous Amor de Dios academy in Fray Luis de Leon street is a great place to watch this lively sight. Flamenco can be seen in many bars and taverns in Madrid. During the evening why not go for a meal in one of the tapas bars, and enjoy listening to the music afterwards. Why not start off your day at Casa Patas, La Torre del Oro or Viña Pe, where you enjoy a leisurely lunch or perhaps just order a glass of wine, some tasty "tapas" - sit back, soak up the buzzing ambience, the music and take in the flamenco atmosphere. Later on in the afternoon why not visit Madrid's specialized flamenco shop, 'El Flamenco', or check-out the shops.
