Feria: when spanish people party hard!


feria11Spanishs are, in my opinion, the best ‘party animals’ among europeans. Hemingway would support (better to say that he ispired) my believe.

If you want to see how much they are ‘commited’ you shouldn’t miss the ‘feria’.
Feria‘, in andalusian region, is the city fair. It’s an event that involve the whole city and it keeps the traditions.
You will see the ladies wearing traditional ‘gitana‘ dresses and men riding horses with traditional and fancy spanish countryside dresses.

Feria‘ falls usually few weeks after the ‘semana santa’, it is celebrated in the biggest andalusians cities and towns.

feria4Sevilla has the biggest and most famous one (however over crowded and touristy).
What’s happening during ‘feria‘? Party, party, party and…party!
In Sevilla it starts, with fireworks, on monday at midnight and it lasts until sunday midnight, when, again, a fireworks show will end the event.

Sevilla has a specific zone of the city dedicated to the feria, don’t worry you can’t miss it, just follow the pictoresque crowd and you will find yourself in a space with small ‘caseta‘ – stands decorated in andalusian style, where is possible to drink, eat, sing and dance flamenco and sevillana for almost 24 hours per day.

Unfortunately most of the ‘casetas‘ are private and you need to know someone to get in, several public ‘casetas’ are available too, but, according to locals, the fun and atmosphere are not the same.
