When to visit
For you to see Seville in all its glory, you should make your travel plans for their Holy Week that starts March 29th to April 5th so that you catch the Semana Santa. During this period, the city’s streets are filled with people commemorating the last days of Christ’s life. Several church brotherhoods take part in the processions carrying bulky, ornately decorated floats displaying bible statues and scenes followed by the penitents dressed in pointed hoods and long robes.
During the Semana Santa festival, accommodation can be hard to come, considering that this is one of Spain’s largest events. As a result, you should make arrangements ahead of time.
