Easter week in Seville, Spain is one of the biggest events in the region. The Andalucia region is well-known for its famous celebration of Easter.
The biggest event in Seville is Easter or ‘Semana Santa’ as they call it. This week will be filled with intense spiritual and visually pleasing events. More than sixty groups will take to the streets and play out the passion and death of Christ.
While the groups manifest the life of Christ people will sing a special flamenco song called ‘saeta’. Apart from the stunning sights and sounds, the streets will be filled with the smell of incense. When you roam the streets you will find yourself or surrounded by singing and music or with the silence of devotion for Christ.
The best days to visit Seville during Semana Santa is Good Friday and Easter Saturday. After these days there will be fewer people, but the spiritual atmosphere will remain.
