Another year has returned to Sevilla to thrive. This time it has to support this popular sport that is gaining more followers. Triathlon ..

But what is so fashionable about it?

Personally I think it is the cocktail of sensations transmitted and the easy attachment of different sports to practice and close to the general public.

This makes it able to practice from elite athletes to groups of friends with no more claim than having a fun time. But beware, beware, it is very addictive!… Year after year many runners repeated the experience to improve their personal best or win to his friend, in order to remind every meeting until next year is boss ...

At school, I was thought Columbus (Colón in Spanish) was born in Genova, Italy in 1451 and that his family was originally from Valladolid. There is a big but though... New studies claim this isn't sure anymore. Columbus was born in Lissabon maybe, or was he from Galicia in northern Spain? A difficult questions to answer, since Christoffer never really wrote down when he was born and where exactly he was living in his childhood. It could be that the religion of Columbus was the reason for him being mysterious about his origins. It is said he was a converted Jew. Since he was going to plead for money at the Christian Kings (Reyes Católicos), it was a better option to wait and see if...

Carril bici Sevilla. Nueva ley de tráfico.

Good afternoon to everyone, 

Much has been talked about the new reform of the traffic law of 2014 and many of us are misinformed and fearful that our disinformation can result in misunderstandings.

I know that the changes can produce confusion and anger, but we must understand the "why" of these changes.

As we have observed, in recent years the landscape of our city has changed ; pedestrian zones, bike lanes, tram rails, ... changes in order to improve mobility and the quality of the air we breathe.

There will be many festivities, concerts and theater in this botanical garden of Seville until the end of the summer. Did you know it was based on the design of the Alhambra and that a French designer made it?

In 1847 Queen Isabel II gave permission to the city to celebrate a fair which was meant to attract many businessmen and other public to the city. It was a huge success and from then on, the fairs where celebrated every year. 

The fair of Seville is always celebrated in spring time. It is organized to inaugurate this season; two weeks after Easter. The original name is "Feria de Abril", which means: "The fair of April". Though, since Eastern was late this year, the fair is celebrated in May. Together with the daily bull fights during the week, the spring festivities are complete. 

Going to the fair is very important if you are in the city. People totally dress up in...

The tradition of Semana Santa is very old and goes back to the Middle Ages. Every year it is celebrated on Palm Sunday and it goes on until the Sunday of Eastern. The most beautiful moment is the so calles "Madrugá", when the statues are carried around on "tronos" (decorated altars) by brotherhoods during the whole night. Sometimes, people are watching the procession, which is enlightened with candles and then sing a special flamenco ode to the statue of the Virgen Mary. This is called a "saeta" and it will be the only thing you´ll hear in the night from White Thursday until Good Friday. 

Good places (but busy!) to watch the processions are:

osborne bull, toro osborne

Though, when driving through the wonderful nature of Andalusia, we also get to know another kind of bulls: the bulls of Osborne.

Our local Sherry brand (Osborne) placed these black bulls in nature to promote their products. Already in 1956, the artist Manolo Prieto from Cádiz came up with the idea of putting silhouettes of black bulls on hills, next to roads and near highways. These wooden bulls where soon turned into metal bulls, because of the weather.. (Yes, we do have rain in Andalusia, act...
