Sevilla during Easter Week 2008

by lckockelman

Hello,

I am looking to travel from the U.S. to Europe March 17-26 with a flight into Madrid. I would like to visit Cordoba, Sevilla, Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Ronda and Grenada. Ideally in this orfer, but that would place me in Sevilla on the Thursday before Easter, which is VERY expensive. It appears Thursday-Saturday night stays are very expensive during this time. My question is to find out what Sevilla is like post Easter Sunday. Is the city still charming or very crowded and loud? I'm thinking I can perhaps reverse my itinerary above and arrive in Sevilla on Easter Monday instead. Please reply on your thoughts on this or my itinerary overall.

Thank you!

Holy Week runs from Sunday 16th until Sunday 23rd. Let's not try to confuse the issue by talking about 'Easter Monday. The processions in Seville last during the week and end on Sunday 23rd morning. between end of Holy Week there is a 'lull' for 2 weeks before the annual Feria starts. The in between times are of course still busy but not as 'frantic'. Travelling within this period is always going to be busy and reservations will be necessary especially on Mad-Seville route either by train or plane. Thursday night in Seville is important for processions. They will be all night. I would recommend reading http://www.exploreseville.com/events/semana-santa.htm
Seville is very acceptable at any time and Spring is great but if you get a chance to witness the 'semana santa' week then it will be worth while. Having said that, most cities and towns will have their own special 'pasos' and Jerez for example is one of my favorite cities for watching in the evening when the weather is warm. Enjoy your trip !

Have you thought of "couchsurfing" or "hospitalityclub"?They are webpages where travellers can offer you accomodation free! I was in Cordoba last Easter and we were told everything was fully booked but we found a simple hostel while sitting in a square having a beer.Just ask the locals.Good luck!

by SANDYGR

Try the local bars in the old quarter. The people are friendly and the sangria is great. We wandered into a little bar in the old part of town where only the locals seemed to go. The waiter spoke no english and I very little spanish but we made it work. He seemed to really enjoy his job and made us feel right at home, making jokes that even we could understand. It was the best night of our trip.

Anyway, Seville is a monument itself, so i you have time enough i recommend you to have a look at the complete list of monuments and museums (timetables and prices included and some links)

ask, don´t wait

by primaverita

Sevillans are really friendly and always want to help you, but to get in contact with them you have to keep asking. And even then they´re not as open as they seem. They help you, but in five seconds they´re gone. If you really want to have a good friendship, look for a ´intercambio´or exchange. You´ll see you have more in common then you would expect.
