Easter Around the World - Seville

Seville's Easter celebrations are some of the most characteristic around the world, boasting several events throughout the Holy Week that are bound to astound and marvel visitors. Tourists flock to the city during this time of year, drawn by the ancient traditions that go back to the Middle Ages.

See the procession of pasos and admire the wooden sculptures which depict scenes from the Passion, some of them quite ancient and of artistic merit. There are over 60 processions during the week, but the ones not to miss are the ones on Holy Thursday, when eerie cloaked figures fill the night of Seville in order to arrive at the Cathedral on the dawn of Good Friday.

While you're in the area, why not pick up a car hire in Seville and tour Andalusia? Discover Cadiz, explore Granada or drive your car hire to Malaga for a dip in the ocean! For all that it's only early spring, Spanish weather is generous and the Mediterranean waters already start to seem inviting! Beat the tourist crowds and enjoy the luxury of having the Costa del Sol beaches all to yourself!
