Semana Santa

Semana Santa is the holy week before Easter day. Catholic brotherhoods (hermandades) organize the processions through the city. Each one generally consists of: El Cristo (float with image of Christ), La Virgen (float with image of the Virgin Mary), up to 3000 Nazarenos and 2 music bands.

Date: Year 2008: March 16th (Domingo de Ramos) - March 23rd (Domingo de Resurreción)
Location:Through the quarter of the respective brotherhood and on the Camino Oficial in the historical center of Seville
Schedule:  Up to 8 processions every day, with a duration of 5-13 hours each
Must See: Most spectacular day is the night from Thursday to Friday (La Madruga). We recommend seeing the processions of La Macarena and El Silencio. The first one with music and La Centuria Romana (100 Roman soldiers). The latter with only three musical instruments and a more serious atmosphere.

Feria de Abril

The Feria de Abril has its origins in an animal market at the Prado de San Sebastian. Successively, the party after the business became more and more important and since 1920 the market has completely disappeared. Many institutions, clubs and private persons have their own tents (Casetas), which are decorated like a living-room. Members meet every night to eat, drink and dance.

Date: Year 2008: April 8th - April 13th
Location:Los Remedios (see coordinate W-7 in City Map)
Schedule:See horses and carriages parading in the late morning and people dancing Sevillanas at night
Entrance:   Most casetas are open for members only. Political parties, labour unions and other institutions provide large public casetas. However, the atmosphere is different there.
