How do we get to Centro Flamenco La Fuente?
The best way to get here is to book a flight to Granada airport (airport code GRX), from where we provide transfers to and from the school.

Please note that there will be one transfer per day. To avoid unnecessary delay, please consult with us before booking your flight. Should you not be able to arrive at a suitable time for the transfer, we can arrange a private car.

The cost of this is 90 € from Granada and 140 € from Malaga.

Alternatively, if you are not able to fly directly to Granada from where you are, you can book a flight to Malaga and then take the bus to Granada, which takes about 75 minutes. We will then collect you from Granada bus station and provide transfers to and from the school. Back to top

What is the weather like?
Beautiful, mostly! We're located about 30 kilometres inland from the southern coast of Spain, an area of Europe with more than 300 days of sun per year.

If you'd like to see more, the Instituto Nacional de Meteorología has seven day forecasts for every town in Spain. They are in Spanish of course but easily understandable. Just click here (link opens in a new window), select the province (provincia) you want, eg. Granada, and then choose the location (municipio), e.g. Capileira. Back to top

What do I do about lunch and dinner?
Capileira offers a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. Lunch is usually available between 1.30pm - 4pm, and dinner from 7.30pm - 10pm. Prices range from 10 to 30 Euros per person for a meal plus wine.

Alternatively, another very popular option is to enjoy the free tapas that many bars in Capileira offer when drinks are ordered Back to top

Do I need insurance?
We strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive personal travel insurance. In addition, it is highly recommended that visitors from other European Union countries obtain a European Health Card (this replaces the form E111 in the UK).

Please note that whilst every care is taken to ensure the safety of guests and their effects, Centro Flamenco La Fuente cannot accept responsibility for loss of personal belongings or injury. Back to top

Where can I find out more about Flamenco?
The web has a wealth of wonderful resources about Flamenco, both for beginners, and for those who are more knowledgeable, too. Here's some of our favourites:

"Flamenco is one of the great European nonacademic musical genres. More than simply a type of folk music, flamenco embodies a complex musical and cultural tradition. Although considered part of the culture of Spain in general, flamenco is really original from one region Andalusia". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flamenco

ESFlamenco is a great site offering a wide selection of Flamenco information and products, ranging from CDs and DVDs to castanets, dresses, shoes and drums.
