Seville - History and culture
If it's romance, history, culture and bullfights you want then Seville is one of the best places to visit in Spain.
Seville has a history dating back over 2,500.  Seville like every  where in Spain has fabulous festivals but here they are considered to be some of the best in Spain, these are exciting festivals combined with  flamenco music that plays long into the night.   Visitors can stroll it's ancient streets drink in the atmosphere and beauty as well as from the numerous terrace cafés serving tapas and sherry wine.
 
 The festivals around Easter and April are some of the best in Spain and certainly amongst the ten best things to see in Seville if not Spain.Semana Santa, Easter Week, with its world-famous processions and Feria de Sevilla, arguably the best Flamenco  event in Spain.

The Seville Semana Santa dates from the 16th century, when the Catholic Church decided to present the Passion of Christ to the population in an easily understandable way: they had made huge wooden figures of Saints by the greatest artists of that time and those figures were carried with the processions.
The realism of this representation impressed people deeply indeed ., and still today the Sevillanos are cheering the Holy Virgin of their parish church in a way that is often hard to understand for spectators.
Ahead of the procession comes a group of so-called Nazarenos, in long gowns with hoods , behind them Penitents, with crosses on their shoulders, then the figures of the Saints carried by Costaleros, each of whom has to carry a weight of up to 100 kg. All those men are members of a Cofradia, a brotherhood dedicating to organize one of those processions. There are 52 Cofradias in Seville.
 
The  Feria de Abril, is an exciting, colourful, noisy and vibrant festival lasting a week. Starting as just a cattle-market, but now one of the best festivals in Spain.  The beautiful Seville women in traditional flamenco dresses.  The fair ground is filled with little tents or boothes called casetas are decorated with colourful lamps.
 The landowners parade by on horses or in horse-coaches . In the afternoon starts a great party of Flamenco and sherry-wine in each Caseta that will take all the night long . That is repeated day by day during an entire week.
During this same week take place as well the most important bullfights in town.

The Day of Inmaculada is another of the best things to see and visit in Seville, Spain. 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 colourful Procession of the three Magi, who pass on horse-coaches and give small presents and sweets to the children.
