“A bit of Cervantes and...flamenco”
Review of Posada del Potro

Posada del Potro
Ranked #21 of 144 things to do in Cordoba
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 March 2018

A rectangular cobblestone square with a 16th century fountain in the middle and a prancing horse atop an octagonal structure, reportedly the famous novelist's "muse" for Don Quixote's Rosinanta. Now matter the stark contrast between the 2, be it for fun, I believed what I was told.
On the left side, the inn - a typical 2-storey corala that used to be a favourite haunt of rogues of the sorts and Cervantes' home for nearly 5 years.Part of it has been redeveloped to venue the Flamenco Centre.Magic!
Planned as a small art gallery (sketches,drawings, a few pictures), it rather looks like a homage paid to generations of world-famous flamenco artists - Fosforito, Antonio Gades among others or the legendary Carmen Amaya who went all the way from the little gipsy girl dancing for some small money to the unique artist whose steps were setting flashboards on fire, spellbinding audiences wherever she appeared.

Free entry to this interesting building which had been accommodation or an inn for 500 years. Now preserved as a museum with a lot of interesting information about flamenco.

This museum is free. Be wary of the restrictive hours in Cordoba where it is hot and they take their siesta very seriously. By September 2017 most stuff was available in English so I wouldn't pay any mind to older reviews saying there's nothing to be learned. Lots of stuff about Fosforito a famous flamenco guitarist from Cordoba as well as displays on how flamenco guitars are made and the different motions,styles and sounds that go into flamenco music and dance. Very cool interactive audio visual displays. There is information about the history of the courtyard and building itself which is very interesting as well. Beautiful courtyard. Go spend an hour to an hour and a half.

My hostel was just round the corner from here but I hadn't gone inside. A lovely patio and photos, dialogue re - history of flamenco. Couldn't read it unfortunately

The buildings are great, old and atmospheric. The museum bits are all on screens with no English. Not very informative. I would have liked to see beautiful costumes, understandable history of dance etc. Nothing much happened when we went.rather disappointed . It is free though and if your Spanish is excellent it will be more intetsteing
