What to do in Seville during Holy Week?

Processions, gastronomy, music, and the best atmosphere await you in the center of Seville during Holy Week. Here are some of the best plans for your visit:

Attend the processions

More than 70 brotherhoods participate in Seville’s Holy Week, a spectacle worthy of admiration. For 10 days, the streets are filled with beautiful sculptures, music, and religious fervor. Check the routes and schedules of the processions and dare to experience an event that will connect you with the spirituality of this celebration.

Undoubtedly, one of the most special processions is La Madrugá, which takes place in the early hours of Good Friday. It consists of 6 different floats that parade along a route of more than 5 kilometers carried out in 14 hours. You’d better wear comfortable shoes and clothes.

Visit the churches

Another way to connect with spirituality during these dates is by visiting the different churches that adorn the city. Some of them are the Church of El Salvador, the Basilica of Jesus of the Great Power, the Basilica of La Macarena, the Church of San Lorenzo, or the Basilica of El Patrocinio. We’re sure you’ll be captivated by their architecture and historical legacy. The Cathedral of Seville deserves a special mention; don’t miss the opportunity to climb the Giralda to contemplate all the splendor of this beautiful city.

Try typical dishes and sweets

If you’re a lover of gastronomy, especially sweets, Holy Week is a perfect time to pamper your palate. Go to the most traditional establishments to try typical Lenten dishes in this city. This includes spinach with chickpeas, cod with tomato, fried fish, and Lenten stew, among others.

As for desserts, don’t miss the Andalusian version of torrijas, pestiños, yemas, “bones of the saints,” or empanadillas de cabello de ángel. Delicious!

Start your collection of Holy Cards

If you were one of those kids who loved collecting trading cards, we have good news for you: you can indulge your hobby in this city. During Holy Week, special trading cards dedicated to this celebration and the brotherhoods that are part of it are put up for sale. They are known as Holy Cards.
