The Flamenco Dance Museum had displays of beautiful and fancy dresses for flamenco dancing, it also had videos explaining the various flavors of flamenco dancing, and the famous dancers over the years. It was quite interesting. We also purchased tickets to include the dance show in the evening, so we would return later tonight.
Since we couldn't see the Cathedral interior today, we went to the next attraction, the Alcazar Real, the royal palace. It was right next to the Cathedral, and had many beautiful and interesting architectural details to look at. Very moorish and intricately designed, not quite as fancy in scale as the Alhambra we would visit in Granada later on our trip, but it was definitely a palace! The garden had many fountains, and formal designs. I loved the elevated walkway around the garden the most, what a great idea! We could overlook the garden as we walked around it, then we descended a narrow stairway and walked back inside the garden on the way out.
We returned to the hotel for a siesta, and headed back to the Flamenco Dance Museum around 7pm for the dance show.
After watching the dance, we walked to the Barrio de Santa Cruz area and had our dinner at the restaurant Corral del Agua which served fine Andalusian cuisine, it was described as a romantic pink-tablecloth place with a smart interior and charming courtyard seating in the guidebook, and the fried fishes were real good, I had a duck leg as my main course. Then we toured around in the Barrio de Santa Cruz after dinner before heading back to the hotel.
