What would Spain be without flamenco? If you decided to celebrate your big day in this beautiful country then plan a flamenco show visit for your guests. Enjoy the rhythm of the guitar, the dancers stomping and twirling and get carried away in the Spanish sweetness. If you want the best possible experience then we recommend the heart of Cadiz as it really is performing this art at its absolute best, you will give your guests a taste of the musical culture of Andalucia.

3. An assortment of tapas
