Holidays to Seville: fun, flamenco, and festivals

Seville is an intensely romantic city of winding streets perched on the river Guadalquivir in Andalucía, Southern Spain. History seeps out of every part of this city’s spectacular architecture. It can also claim to have been the setting for Carmen as well as Don Juan, and Figaro. The birthplace of the great Spanish artist Velazquez, his art is displayed in the Hospital of the Venerable Bishops. Seville was once the capital of the Moorish Empire, and this alluring Andalusian city revels in an opulent mix of Muslim, gothic and baroque styles. Peppered with spectacular architecture, it is popular as a weekend break destination. Due in no small part to its compact size – it is possible to easily explore every picturesque quarter on foot.

Soak up the history

The Barrio Santa Cruz is the picturesque Jewish Quarter of Seville, packed tightly with cobbled streets and quaint houses and flickers of the city’s Moorish past. The Alcazar Palace, famous for its tiled and domed rooms and once home to Spain’s rulers, both Moor and Christian, is breath-taking in its beauty. The world’s largest Gothic church, the Cathedral of Seville, is also the burial place for the famous explorer Christopher Columbus.

Processions, festivals, and flamenco

The local residents are called Sevillanos and they are not known for their restraint. Seville’s Semana Santa, or Holy Week, takes place the week before Easter and lasts for eight days and nights. Parades of hooded penitents, processions of floats dedicated to Christ, the Virgin Mary or Saints are watched by crowds from Spain and around the world. These can last for hours, and even all night when the streets are lined with flickering candles. Later in spring, from the end of April to the first week of May, there is the Feria de Abril, with horseback parades, partying, dancing, and the local custom of drinking sherry with lemonade.

Enjoy the nightlife

The nightlife in Seville has something for everyone, including bars, flamenco social clubs call Pena, restaurants with varieties of delicious tapas. Holidays to Seville must include flamenco, the dance synonymous with the city. A star of the dance, Sevillana Cristana Hoyos started the Museo del Baile Flamenco. Every evening this courtyard hosts a one hour show.
