If there is a city that lives spring to the fullest, that is Seville. Its two great festivities take place at this time of year, which is why it becomes an almost obligatory visit for travelers of all tastes.
The start of these Spring Festivals in Seville is marked by the Holy Week. From Friday of Sorrows to Easter Sunday, the processions take place through the city, with the historic center as the epicenter of everything. The most prominent days are Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
