Seville, a city for leisure.
Few cities in the world, whether due to the warmth of their people, the outdoor culture, the mild, pleasant climate or the open, carefree character of Sevillians, can boast 365 days and nights a year of leisure and enjoyment of culture, shows and the rich local cuisine.
Some of its main fiestas, such as the Fair and Easter Week, are known the world over. The April Fair can receive up to a million visitors on its ephemeral streets. Cultural and musical events can be found in the theatres, stages and, as nowhere else in the world, in the streets.
The world-famous “tapas”, those little marvels of local gastronomy, delight the visitor, who can try the infinite variety, each tastier and more surprising than the last.
Traditions such as the “seises”, young boys who perform a holy dance that goes back to the 15th century, or the Corpus Christi procession with a spectacular monstrance of solid silver, reveal a city determined to conserve its age-old traditions.
But Seville would not be with Seville without its daytime and its nightlife of non-stop enjoyment. The streets and bars always have something to offer for fun and socialising.
