- Feria de Abril: Seville’s legendary five-day event takes place, beginning on Tuesday and wrapping up with fireworks on Sunday, and is one of Andalusia’s biggest fairs “feria”. During the Fair, people will eat, drink and dance traditional Sevillanas until dawn. The women will wear the “traje de gitano”, while many men will wear short waistcoats and wide-brimmed hats.
- Semana Santa: The Holy Week processions in Seville are Spain’s most famous. From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday sombre penitents will march through the streets wearing sandals, robes, and those slightly eerie pointed hoods. These groups belong to brotherhoods attached to churches across the city and will carry large and very decorative floats portraying passion scenes and weeping Virgins. On this night the processions make their steady way around the centre until the morning.
