Seville’s April Fair lights up Spain

From April 15th to 21st, tropical Seville lives only for its colourful fair: Feria de Abril (The April Fair). Music, Gastronomy, dancing and fun meet to create a very special atmosphere in the Spanish city every day, from noon till dawn.

During the day, horses and carriages parade about the site, with women dressed in their flamenco finery and men in traditional suits. At night, people wander around the casetas (brightly striped tents), as they drink, eat, sing and, of course, dance sevillanas.

As the week ends, people gather to watch the finale: an amazing display of fireworks.

Travel to Seville aboard Renfe’s High Speed trains with the convenience of e-tickets and enjoy this impressive festival! Spain’s AVE train is one of the world’s fastest long-distance passenger trains. It can reach a maximum speed of 350 km/h (220 mph).

Travel between Madrid – Seville in 2 hours and a half, Barcelona – Seville 5 hours and Valencia – Seville in 3 hours and 50 minutes.
