Postponement of the April Fair
The postponement of the April Fair due to the situation caused by COVID-19 has caused many people to have to postpone their visit to the city of Seville. From our tourist apartments in the center of Seville we want to explain some of the characteristics of this celebration.
For now, the Seville City Council has decided that the festival could be held from September 19 to 26, for now only one possibility. In the event that it took place, it would be much smaller. Although for now the lovers of the Seville Fair could continue to enjoy it with some modifications.
This festival is celebrated annually in the spring. All citizens have a mandatory appointment at the Real de la Feria. In this place they meet to have a good time among friends, family and acquaintances. The enclosure has streets with sheds, buildings which have typical decoration such as lanterns. On average a day about 500,000 inhabitants attend the Seville Fair. Many of them attracted by music, dance and good times.
From Patios de la Cartuja we invite you to visit this typical event at some point. It usually takes place one or two weeks after Easter, coinciding with the bulls in the Plaza de la Maestranza.
This fair has a long journey, since its origin dates back to 1846, having 19 booths at its origin. Over time it evolved, currently becoming a meeting to spend a good time with your friends and family.
The gastronomy of this celebration is also one of its strong points. The morning of Saturday to Sunday is the night of the fish, where it is customary to consume fish fries. During the rest of the days the booths offer a wide range of traditional tapas from the place. Among the most outstanding are cheese, cured meats, seafood, omelette or ham. There is also an egg for potatoes with chocos, chickpeas with cod and chochos. And for the sweet tooth churros and fritters.
