Sevilla's Feria de Abril in Pictures
The Feria de Abril, or April Fair of Sevilla, is one of Spain’s most famous festivals. It combines several Spanish icons: flamenco dresses, flamenco dancing, the Cordobés hat, and horses.
I was lucky this year to have a friend invite me to the Feria, which happened to take place this year not in April, but in May. That’s because it’s held exactly two weeks after Easter, which was late this year.
For me, the Feria de Abril is best shown through pictures, because it really was one of the most visually stunning events I’ve ever witnessed. So here’s a selection of my favorite pictures from a long weekend I spent in Sevilla:
Feria was such a visually impressive event. Without knowing people there though, it might be a bit less interesting, since most casetas are private (there are a couple public ones), and the main activity is standing around and chatting. That’s why I feel so lucky to have been invited by local Sevillanas!
