One of the smallest and most intimate of Seville's tablaos, the Flamenco Dance Museum or "Museo del Baile Flamenco" was founded by Cristina Hoyos, the most awarded flamenco dancer and choreographer of all time. It was constructed within an 18th-century palace house in Seville, which was built atop a Roman temple's ruins from centuries ago.

The rich history of the structure is preserved in the museum, alongside the equally rich culture of flamenco that is on display. The venue hosts regular flamenco shows post-museum hours throughout the week, with a main event in the Ecijan-style patio tablao and an exclusive acapella flamenco in the VIP basement tablao.
