Among the many events that take place throughout the year in the city of Seville. “Feria de Abril” is one of the most important and emblematic events in the city of Seville. Represents both tradition and Andalusian culture, extolling itself as a tourist attraction not only in Spain, but internationally. And LOCK & enjoy! is the solution for your luggage.

Such is its worldwide repercussion, that finding accommodation during the Feria de Abril in Seville is a challenge. Because there are no rooms or flats available, or because the price is simply prohibitive.

When is the Feria de Abril in Seville?

Where is the Feria de abril in Seville?

The heart of the celebration is in the Gran Recinto Ferial, better known as the Real de la Feria de Sevilla, which is characterised by being an enclosure prepared for the occasion. Multitude of streets full of stalls decorated with coloured lanterns that are responsible for providing colour and illumination. Constantly crossed by riders on horseback and the traditional carriages. The Sevillian costumes, music and the smell of “pescaito frito” (fried fish) are classic elements.

The night of the alumbrao, the most special moment of the Fair

The “noche del alumbrao” is the night that officially inaugurates the April Fair in Seville. With the lighting of the monumental façade that leads to the entrance to the fairgrounds with thousands of light bulbs at 00:00 hours on the opening Sunday.

For the people of Seville, the night of the alumbrao is as important as New Year’s Eve, and tradition dictates that this night marks the beginning of a new year.
