April Fair is a week of celebrations in Seville which involves lots of dancing, drinking, eating and socialising.
It was created in 1847 as a cattle fair, and over time the festive atmosphere that had grown took over and it became a permanent fixture in Seville’s social calendar.
For a week more than a thousand ‘casetas’ or tents installed in the fairground area become the second home of the city’s inhabitants.
