The Seville April fair is one of the most impressive sightings with Spanish families clothed in all their traditional finery, some riding on horses groomed to perfection or in decorated stylish carriages.
The date of the April fair
This year the famous April fair (feria) will take place from the 12th to the 17th April. If you are holidaying at Club La Costa World then you might like to drive (allow about 2.5 hrs) or take the train from Malaga (under 2 hrs on the AVE) for a day or evening stopover in this romantic city; and witness something of these colourful celebrations which take place at Los Remedios to the south west of the city, next to the river.
The April fair week is one of serious dancing with flamenco frills flying, plentiful drinking, eating and socialising that can run from one night to the next! Amid the heady scent of orange blossom and jasmines, it’s a joyous experience and one that will guarantee you some remarkable scenes to photograph.
April fair highlights
Recommended is the official first day when from midday to early evening Seville society is on display parading around the fairground in gleaming carriages or on horseback.
Of course, as with all cities thronged with people – and the crowds will be large – we would advise you to leave your valuables behind and take good care of carried personal belongings so as not to have your day spoiled.
