The interpretation of the artists, the stage, the music, the lights all create an exceptional ambiance enticing guests to enjoy a local cultural experience at the Tablao Flamenco El Palacio Andaluz, one of Spain's finest flamenco venues. Just a 10 minute walk from ISOPP 2023’s Symposium venue, Palacio Andaluz is located in the heart of the emblematic district of La Macarena in a former 19th century building with the structural design of a typical Sevillian house-palace.

From any seat, guests will enjoy the spectacle with a great view and sound to truly appreciate an authentic flamenco show in a unique tablao (a place where flamenco shows are performed).
