Feria! Seville Shines During the Annual Celebration



I love a good celebration. And one that showcases a heritage of skilled horsemanship, good eating and fine spirits, well, even more.

In the weeks following Easter, cities and towns across Spain put on festivals that highlight food, music, dance and of course regional pride.


Recently, it was Seville’s turn. And the city did not disappoint the thousands of spectators and participants who turned out


Despite the scorching temperatures. That’s  44 Celsius, or 111 degrees Fahrenheit


But I managed to find a way to keep cool

Took a break from all the fun in Sevilla and ventured to Alcala, at one time the place that baked Seville’s bread


Found some interesting things there, such as this tunnel that runs deep below the surface of a fortress castle built by the Moors.  I was warned by a couple of locals not to venture in because all sorts of hidden dangers lurk within its darkness. They were not specific when pressed. Maybe dragons? There is a dragon bridge nearby.


What, you didn’t believe?
