What people are saying about Province of Cádiz

This show was fantastic! We went on Christmas night, so it was a small group of spectators but the dancers and musicians really gave it their all. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. At just over an hour , it ended leaving us with wanting just a little more- and we were treated to a terrific encore. The venue is lovely. Highly recommend!

The truth is that we loved it, thanks to Sergio the driver and especially to Miguel the guide, who made the visit very enjoyable, with his charm and his way of explaining things to us, despite spending a long time on the bus. visit I recommend it 100%

I had family visit from the United States and I wanted to show off a bit of Spanish culture. They thought it was a beautiful experience and had a great time. I'll be bring more family members to this show in the future.
