Festivals and Food in Seville

La Semana Santa. Seville’s Holy Week is perhaps the most representative event of the city. It is celebrated from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday and displays all the spectacular folklore of the Andalusian traditions. Hundreds of people in slow processions wind their way across the city to reach the cathedral, with the faithful dressed up in traditional costumes, wearing sinister cone shaped hoods, followed by a huge crowd of spectators. The details of the processions, like routes and time can be found in any local newspaper.

La Feria de Abril. Seville’s festival is celebrated in the second half of April or at beginning of May, depending when Easter falls. It’s the “liberation” after the period of penitence of the Holy Week. Shows, funfairs, music, food and lots of wine light up the six days of the Feria, as the Sevillians devote themselves to eat, drink, show off the best clothes and dance until dawn.


Seville is a lucky city also when is time to eat, in fact here you will find the best food products that arrive from every corner of Andalucia, such as fresh fish from Cadiz, Jaen’s olive oil or sherry wine from Jerez de la Frontera.

As you can guess tapas bars are in every corner of Seville, so enjoy the incredible variety of appetizers with a glass of wine or a caña (drought beer).
The Jamón de Bellota, the Iberian ham, is a delicacy that you cannot miss, but keep an eye on the wallet as it can be expensive.
