Holy Week in Seville May 01, 2011
Starting on Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday), and ending on Domingo de Resurrección (Easter Sunday), there are 57 brotherhoods that pay the religious visit to the Cathedral of Seville.
Days of the processions are from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. The most important day is Thursday at midnight - its called the madruga.
Unfortunately this year it was cancelled due to the rain. Nonethless, sevilla fever continues to spill the streets of sevilla in the absence of the processions.
A few basic tips:
*Bring an umbrella/raincoat
*wear comfortable shoes
*Check out processions in narrow streets
*Allocate enough time to get to your viewing point...Lots of people around, a 10min walk could take u 30min.
*Take a siesta like the locals in order to stay up all night.

Seville is one of the most beloved places to visit when you are in south part of Spain (Costa Del Sol). This is the heart of Andalusian culture, and Flamenco music. Have some Spanish Tapas and delicious Sherry Wine, yuuumm. Everywhere you go there is live music playing Spanish guitar such a fascinating experience and Cultural Joy.
