Seville Tourist information
On arrival at Seville Airport passengers are provided with extensive connections to many destinations in Spain. We suggest you cheap local and national bus services regularly departing from the airport. Taxis are a more expensive option, but they provide a direct route to your destination. You can also hire a car and easily collect your vehicle with some provider located just on the arrivals hall.
The city of Seville is on the plain of the Guadalquivir River which crosses the city. The river can be navigated from Seville to its outlet near town Sanlúcar de Barrameda, on the Atlantic coast.
Seville Holy week
Semana Santa is Holy Week and Sevilles celebration is likely the most famous in the world. A religious festival where hooded penitents march in long processions followed by huge baroque floats on which sit images of the Virgin or Christ, surrounded by cheerful crowds. Whether you are religious or not theres something to enjoy and we guarantee you won’t see anything like this anywhere else.
Seville Feria de Abril
Generally it comes two weeks after Semana Santa. Its a week-long party of drink, food and dance which takes place day and night in more than a thousand mounted tents called casetas. The afternoon is the time to see horses and most of the traditional dresses of Feria.
