‘Fosforito’. A name unknown to the most of travelers, but familiar to the flamenco lovers.

That's right, the Fosforito is one of the most prolific flamenco singers the city of Cordoba has ever seen born, and this museum is a living tribute to the artist's legacy. But not only that, the Centro Flamenco Fosforito is an honor and a way of giving life to flamenco: the true spirit of Cordoba.

Activities and guided tours. Evening tributes. Exhibitions. A historical environment. These are just some of the things you will find in the Centro Fosforito: one of the many icons of the city of the three cultures.

A space for the most precious art

In a privileged setting -Plaza del Potro- and in an iconic dwelling - the Posada del Potro- this museum is articulated as a ‘multidisciplinary space dedicated to the dissemination of flamenco and to the figure of the cantaor Antonio Fernández 'Fosforito' promoted by the Cordoba City Council’ as indicated on its official website.

This cultural center located in a popular house of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, becomes a reference for the past, present and even the future flamenco, not only in Cordoba, also in the world.

One place, two tributes

The same space shares two main axes.

- The Posada del Potro | With the essence of a Renaissance neighborhood house, articulated around a corral, an emblematic place of the coexistence and culture of Cordoba.

The corral of the Posada del Potro was one of Cervantes' favorite places, where in addition to lodging, it served as inspiration for some of his works.

- Homage to Antonio Fernández, the Fosforito | One of the most universal figures in flamenco.
