The Feria de Abril (April Fair) is in full swing as revellers flock to Seville to celebrate Andalusian culture. Starting its life as a livestock fair in the 19th century, the Feria de Abril is now an opportunity for people in the city to dress up and take part in an exuberant, springtime fiesta. Women wear traditional flamenco dresses known as 'Sevillanas', while men often dress in short jackets, tight trousers and boots and hats called 'cordobes'.

The fair takes place every year around two weeks after Easter and runs from Monday through Sunday. The large fairground is covered in marquees called 'casetas', which serve as private party venues for some of Spain's wealthiest families. Much flamenco dancing and Manzanilla drinking ensues.
