Do you hear this loud roar on the streets? Do not rush to run for the umbrella, it's not thunder, it's the sound of the castanets of street flamenco dancers.
How to buy castanets for flamenco in Seville
Your probably thinking why do you need these strange chestnut-shaped pieces of wood bound together with a lanyard that emit strange sounds? But you're in the homeland of flamenco! Leaving Sevilla without a pair of its traditional musical instruments is like not bringing a small Eiffel tower from Paris. So go ahead to find the most authentic castanets!

How to do?

1. You can find castanets in any souvenir shop in the city.
2. There are a lot of Chinese plastic castanets, but choose wooden with a carved drawing on them.
3. Sellers sometimes arrange a whole musical show in order to attract buyers, so enjoy the presentation and choose the ones you like.
4. And now go get some dress and shoes, so that you could take a couple of lessons of flamenco right on the streets in the evening.

How much?

The cost of castanets, depending on the material from which they are made can vary from €5 to €20.
