Although Spain is much more than tapas, sangria, bullfights and flamenco dance, these are probably the things which most identify Spain and its culture.
And no place is better than La Feria de Sevilla to experience all of this. During this annual fair, which dates back to 1847, each day begins with a parade of carriages and riders, taking Seville's inhabitants to the casetas located on the fairgrounds.
Casetas are individual decorated marquee tents.
Although some casetas are open to the public, they usually belong to prominent Sevillian families, clubs (the Seville Rotary has a caseta) and associations.
From the afternoon till the early morning of the next day, crowds party and dance sevillanas on the streets, the fairgrounds and inside the casetas. And of course, all women wear the traditional flamenco dress.
Spanish gastronomy is well represented during the Feria by the traditional tapas. The common drink during the fair is the Rebujito, a cocktail that mixes Manzanilla (a kind of sherry) and soft drinks.
