Although Flamenco has only been documented for two centuries, it is internationally renowned for having Andalusian origins. In the past, Flamenco was only vocal but it began to become popular between 1765 and 1860 with the opening of the first flamenco schools in Cadiz. Its golden age was between 1869 and 1910, as the guitarists joined the dancers on the stage. Today, Flamenco is part of the cultural and intangible heritage of Unesco. It is also an unavoidable global phenomenon. You may never have seen a show, you may never have visited Spain, but you already know what Flamenco is.
You already know that Flamenco is an amalgamation of passionate dance and intense singing, but have you ever witnessed authentic shows? If this is not the case, Flamenco City, which is an 11-day festival that highlights Flamenco in the city of Barcelona, is the perfect opportunity for you. And if you have already come to this festival or are passionate about Flamenco, you will probably come back this weekend, as the atmosphere is authentic and unique. The festival opens May 16 with the master of flamenco, Chicuelo, as the main character and will end on May 31 with the famous show of Flamenco dancers. If you are passionate, Friday night is the day not to be missed as Antoni Lizana presents his last three albums. So, are you ready to have goosebumps along a journey closer to your emotions?

Who has never dreamed of spending a night at the museum? Certainly not us! Of course, we guess that during the Night at the Museum, stuffed animals, wax figures and statues don’t come to life, as in the famous film with Ben Stiller. However, during the Night of Museums in Barcelona, there will be a lot of life with special activities, live performances, and music from 7 pm until 1 am! And the best thing about this initiative, which is practiced everywhere in Europe, is that during this night, you will be able to visit a large number of museums for free.
This is an unusual experience as you will be able to see art from a more fun and modern perspective. Then dress in your best clothes to admire the cultural places in a very special way during the evening. More than 80 museums in different parts of Barcelona, such as Eixample, Gracia, El Raval, Badalona, and many others, participate in the event. To only list a few, the cultural places that participate in the event and that you can visit for free this year are the Montjuic Castle, the MACBA, the Foundation of Joan Miro, the Palau Guell, the Design Museum of Barcelona, the Museum of FC Barcelona, the Picasso Museum or the Tower of the Cross.

To relax, we found a much simpler and free solution. Indeed, Saturday 18, Meditando Por El Mundo, organizes a collective meditation class at the full moon on Bogatell beach.
