Seville: Fiestas and Folklore

Sevilla: Shows & Concerts If you would like to discover the popular customs of this region, you should visit Seville in springtime, when within only two weeks take place the two most important festivities of this city: Holy Week (Semana Santa), Easter Week, with its world-famous processions, and the April Fair of Seville (Feria de Abril), the Flamenco-event in the land.

In the following weeks there are similar but of course much smaller Ferias in many of the villages and towns around.

Another certainly attractive event for visitors is the Day of Inmaculada. In the night from 7th to 8th of December come together all the Tunas (student's fraternities in traditional medieval dresses) of the city - and many of all the country - at the statue of the Virgin Inmaculada, between cathedral and Alcazar, to perform their traditional songs.
The next morning takes place the Danza de los Seises in the cathedral, a dance performance of children as well in traditional dresses.

At the evening of January, 5th there is the colorful Procession of the three Magi, who pass on horse-coaches and give small presents and sweets to the children.
