Seville without a doubt offers some of the best Flamenco in Spain.

When are Seville’s festivals?
Two famous festivals are Semana Santa (Easter Week) and Seville's Feria which is the largest in the country.
- Semana Santa (Easter Week) in 2010 is between 28th March and 4th April. The Easter parade is not just a religious ceremony but is one of the most spectacular shows in Europe mixing religious devotion with human artistic flair and endeavour. This is a pilgrim of different kind with magnificent displays, parades and sermons that make it a moving event regardless of your faith.
- Seville's Feria (20- 25th April) is the largest in the country and kick starts the Feria season in Andalucia. Ferias across Andalucia are the remnants of the Reconquista celebrating the fall of each city and reinvention of Spain as Christian army marched through al Andalus. Ferias in effect are a huge street party with free concerts, shows, street stalls, competitions and activities for all the family going on until into the late hours of the morning. Attending the Feria requires Andalucian levels of party stamina!
