Maria herself lived in this cave, now considered a “cathedral” of Flamenco art. For many years, the living room in which the family live during the day turned into a place where every night thousands of enthusiastic tourists came in search of the magic of the Gypsies Zambras, a collection of dances and songs symbolizing highlight moments of a weeding.

Enrique el Canastero, Maria’s son now owns and takes care of the cave with the same affection and spirit as his mother. He has preserved the cave in its original condition which is why it is considered by cultural institutions as one of the museums of Granada. Maria’s cave has a privileged position among Granadas touristic highspots, given that it is the best conserved and most emblematic of Flamenco houses, deserving its fame throughout Spain and abroad.
