Holy Week and April Fair Tours
Spring in Seville is absolutely spectacular, indescribable, you need to live it!!
The HOLY WEEK is a true experience that you must live hand in hand with someone who understands and love it and is able to guide you through the crowded streets, the centenarian mysteries 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…
APRIL'S FAIR, originally an important and old livestock fair but today is the biggest social and aesthetic event of the city. The entertainment a and the party is moved to an ephemeral city, the horsemen and horsewomen. . .
It is a genuine feast of colour and image you will never forget!
