best place to stop for night between Granada and Sevilla -- and tips for Sevilla for teens

In early June, I will be staying in Granada for 2 nights and then driving to Sevilla for 3 nights (traveling with husband and sons ages 15 and 18). Where should I stop for a night in between? I will leave Granada on the morning of Friday June 6 and want to arrive in Sevilla the evening of Sat June 7. Cordoba is an obvious choice, but I also am thinking Rondo might be a more interesting drive and option. Also, any thoughts for Sevilla, especially Flamenco (where would admit an underaged 15 year old). I read somewhere of an amazing Flamenco performance by one of the very best, in Sevilla during this period, but now can't locate that info. Also any other thoughts of activities in these places of interest for teen boys especially (beyond the obvious). Many thanks!

The one-hour evening Flamenco concerts at [La Casa de la Memoria](www.casadelamemoria.es) or La Casa del Flamenco don't serve drinks and take kids as young as age six; see p. 710 in Rick's Spain book.

Assume you realize this is only a little over four hour drive between Granada and Seville?
Recommend Ronda as there is ample exploring to be done in the gorge which teens can easiily navigate.
In Seville try the Red Door for flemenco. Tricky to find and has no sign, just a red door. Well worth the effort.

Thanks for mentioning the international driver's license. I didn't realize I needed one.

Obtain your permit from AAA for $20, the application is essential providing reformatted info of your passport and drivers license. Bring a spare passport quality photo. We enjoy driving in Spain, just strive to stay out of old town narrow streets. We prefer hatchbacks offering a cover to hide the luggage. Be extremely cautious about leaving luggage visible to the public. We prefer to park in non tourist areas and walk to the tourist sites.
