The Fandango is a lively folk and Andalusian flamenco dance; traditionally accompanied by guitar, as seen by the man seated to the right, and castanets, held in the hands of the dancers; an old lady holding rosary beads spectates. From James Murphy's 'Travels in Portugal...in the years 1789-1790' (London, 1795).
