Écija Palacio Peñaflor

Seville enchants

Celebrated for more than 25 years, this festival owes its name to the popular cantaor (flamenco singer) Joaquín Fernández Franco in honour of the art  of Joaquín el de la Paula,  born in Alcalá de Guadaíra and creator of the soleá alcalareña, the soleá flamenco genre specific to this town.

This flamenco song contest, specific to Alcalá, is organized by the flamenco club Peña Flamenca Soleá de Alcalá.  It already boasts a long tradition as it has been held here since 1992.  It can be considered a reference point for this flamenco genre within the Province and the whole region.
