Festivals in Seville, Spain

A good way to know Seville is through its colourful festivals! Most of them are in spring and you’ll find it very interesting that people dress up for these occasions.

Two of the most impressive festivals take place in this time of the year: Easter, which has a religious significance with its traditional processions and the Feria de Abril, which is a colorful and joyful manifestation of the authentic folklore of this land.

A series of fairs in some villages are similar but smaller versions of the Seville Fair, where you can find flamenco dresses, loads of dancing and wine. Sounds like a real party? Indeed, it is! The most important part of Easter are the processions and their “pasos”, which are genuine artworks. In them, the music becomes very important and the impromptu ""saetas” which are emotional religious song are really impressive!
