EL CORRAL DE LA MORERIA: World's best flamenco tablao. Star-studded flameco shows fused with haute cuisine, and with remarkable success too. The only tablao in the world with a Michelin star. Awardee of Repsol Guide's three stars. Celebrities from different fields flock to the Corral, fame begetting fame. One of the "1000 Places to See Before You Die." You've just got to be there and see for yourself!
Surprise surprise. El Bulli is opening its doors as a museum, El Bulli 1846, where visitors can "eat" knowledge. It is no longer a restaurant but a place to ponder, to know why gastronomy creates humanitarianism. The museum's 4.000 square meters reflect and safeguard El Bulli´s DNA, as well as El Bulli´s Bullipedia.

Every year those little germs that travel across the Asian and European continents from the east seem to take a stronger hold. During this last epidemic homes and businesses were very severely affected and in one office 40% of the bilingual secretaries were sick, including the telex and switchboard operators.

London, New York and Paris have been served by these bureaux for a long time now, but in the Spanish capital this was a new venture.
"The costumes in the Machine Dazzle Exhibition reflect Matthew Flower's eclectic careers, and then some. Should I mention it's over the top? Joyfully excessive says it better. If Coco Chanel advised clients to take one thing off before leaving, Machine Dazzle would advise putting on the kitchen sink before leaving."
Flamenco and Jamón Serrano were combined in an unbeatable setting. The reason? To promote flamenco, an extraordinary art and UNESCO's Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Flamenco greats and students from all over Spain and abroad made the event an affair to beat other events.
The designation of Sanlúcar de Barrameda as the " Gastronomical Capital of Spain" in 2022 did not come as a surprise to anyone, as it is famous throughout the world for its incomparable prawns and its exquisite manzanilla, in addition to the rest of the rich local gastronomy that emerges from its waters, marshes and fertile fields. But its incredibly varied and extensive tourism could catch many by surprise.
Why would a tire company want people to go dine out? So they’d get out their cars and drive the distance—the longer the better—wearing out their tires in the process and buy new ones. And where should they dine? Check out the Gold Standard of fine dining, the Michelin Guide!
