It’s the busiest time of the year in Sevilla, with Semana Santa starting on Sunday, and then a week after Easter sees the start of the annual fiesta – the Feria de Abril, which is huge. The area for the fair is about 200m from where we’re parked, and workmen and women are busy building the huts.
With it being school holidays, people are now arriving from all over. The main plaza, San Francisco, was closed and barriers have been put up along the route for the Semana Santa procession, so it’s super busy.
We’ve been to Sevilla before and have seen the sights we’ve wanted to see, so our aim this time was to just chill out and enjoy the food (and wine!). We’ve wandered around the town, been to plenty of tapas bars and seen some street flamenco which was really good to watch. Daughter Sarah was here last year, and had recommended a very traditional bar to us – Casa Morales – so we paid it a visit and it was just the sort of Spanish bar I like.
Tomorrow we will go for a supermarket shop before moving to a free aire outside of Sevilla and away from the madness!
