Semana Santa y Feria de Abril Tours

Spring in Seville is absolutely spectacular, indescribable, you need to live it!!

And besides the perfect weather, the orange blossom scent, and the cheerful atmosphere in the city, the sevillians celebrate our most important festivals.

The Holy Week is a true experience that you must live hand in hand with someone who understand  and love it and is able to guide you through the crowded streets, the centenarian misteries and rituals of the brotherhoods, the history of this complex galore of arts and feelings both religious and profane.

Every year, during the first full moon in Spring, for a whole week, the city stops its normal life to live absorbed  in itself and its celebration. The religious figures made during the best baroque, the old embroideries made with gold thread and silk, the silver and gold metalwork, along with the crowd, the incense, the music… you can live centuries in just one day,  for example, going from the funeral soberness of El Gran Poder to the overflowing joy of La Macarena.

We can not simply explain the feelings and sensations (you must live it) , but we can tell you the history, why, how, when, who….

 

Two weeks after the Holy Week, we have the profane festival: APRIL’S FAIR, originally an important and old livestock fair but today is the biggest social and easthetic  event of the city. The entertainment and the party is moved to an ephemeral city, made with stripe fabric (green or red) and metallic structures, very simples and humble tents, but decorated with luxury, where the sevillian makes home for the week.

The horsemen and horsewomen, the horse carriages  finely embellished, stroll in “El Real” showing off the best traditional andalusian  fashion. It is a genuine feast of colour and images for the eye that you will never forgive, as the taste of manzanilla wine, “el rebujito”  (dry sherry wine with 7up), the fried fish, o the flying frillies when the sevillians dance.

We will give you access to the privacy of the celebration: La Caseta , and we will explain you the history, the functioning and complex codes.
