Seville is anything but boring in Spring because of the two festivities, Semana Santa and Feria de Abril, also known as The Seville Fair.
For the fair, which will make its official start on the 21st of April, there will be a large amount of ground reserved for all the activities and casetas. The casetas can be seen as some kind of stands. Most casetas are for families, businesses or groups of friends. Every year there is a big waiting list for new people that would like to own a stand. It takes a lot of patience and money to have your own.
But don’t worry, there are also public casetas...

Semana Santa literally means the holy week. This week stands for the remembrance of the passion of Jesus Christ. Catholics celebrate this by having multiple processions through Seville.

Each procession takes about 90 minutes and has up to 3000 people who walk along, those people are called Nazarenos, which are practicing already every evening of this month in the city.

During Semana Santa, it’s incredibl...

The biggest lottery is “El Gordo” (the fat one) and one is able to win between 4 and 5 million euros, which is a lot of money, especially during the crisis in Spain. “El Gordo” is always drawn on TV by little children singing during 4 of 5 hours, on the 22nd of December. The probability to pick up a price before Christmas-eve is around 15%. That is why, most people hope to win at least a part of the price. Since a whole lottery ticket can be expensive, people group together to buy it or they buy a tenth (décimo) only.

The little kiosks on the streets of Seville are doing great business in the da...

Andalusia has many beautiful cities, Ronda is one of them. Ronda is known for its nice atmosphere and the famous El Tajo gorge. The city of Ronda is divided in an old and new part by the Tajo de Ronda. There are three bridges that cross the gorge, the puente romano, the puente viejo and the puente nuevo. The puente nuevo (new bridge) is one of the most impressive constructions in Spain. After crossing this bridge you can visit the Plaza de España and the Plaza de Toros.

The bullfighting arena in Ronda is the oldest one in Spain and still in use. Ronda is the birthplace of m...

The aquarium is open for a visit every day of the year. It can be found along the Guadalquivir river at the Paseo de las Delicias., very near to the Maria Luisa Park, which is easy to reach by bike over the bike paths of the city.

A walk around the Aquarium is focused around the trip that explorer Magallan made on his expedition to the East Indies in the 16th century where the port of Seville was the starting point.

I love to travel and I love to ride the bike. While I was traveling I realised how easy it was to explore a new place on a bike. And it is even better when someone tells you where you should go and explains everything you should know about the city and the things you see. I think this is the best way to get to know a new place. On bike you see a lot in little time and this why I started Andalucia Tours and Discovery in 2008.

People in Sevilla are very proud of their city and we love to share stories and experiences with everybody. What I like the most of working at Andalucia Tours and Discovery is when our visitors have a great experienc...
