Feria de Sevilla

   

At least once in your life should travel to Seville to experience the April Fair. It is one of the main fiestas in Spain, where the horse drawn carriages shows, the parades of horses, the Sevilla dances or the musical shows give way every day to the best bullfighting plaza of Real maestranza. It is a time of fiestas; of Andalusian spirit when everywhere you turn you will find an excuse to enjoy the fair and its people. And if during its Fair, Seville is an exposition of joy and colour, during Holy Week silence extends over the city for days of reflection and fervour. It is a great tradition in Seville that a saeta is sung to the various brotherhoods in different parts of the route.

It’s not possible to understand how human relations flow during Feria without considering the wines of Jerez and Sanlúcar (sherry wines of Jerez). Although for some the fino and manzanilla wines represent a most holy duality. In fact they are not what people worship during the Feria.

Fair-goers practice a monotheistic adoration for friendship. Wine plays an essential liturgical role in honoring such a ritual. Though don’t underestimate the ends of these means.

When the macro figures of alcohol consumption during the Feria are published annually, the enormous number of empty bottles and the sea of wine which flowed from them could lead one to think that the Feria de Abril is little more than a huge, collective seven day drunken binge. Nothing further than reality. A Feria drunk is the exception to the rule.
