Perhaps, an irresistible attraction to the breathtaking sights such as bullfighting is one of the most striking features of the indigenous population. During several hundreds of years this kind of entertainment has been causing a lot of controversy, but for the residents of Seville and other Spanish cities bullfighting is not simply an exciting pastime, but a real national tradition. Bullfights usually attract travelers, who sometimes are ready to make long distance rides just to watch the enchanting spectacle. The first "modern" bullfight was held in 1775, but the very first games with bulls took place here more than two thousand years ago. During the event all seats of a stadium are always taken. In order to see the bullfight, we recommend purchasing the ticket in advance. The average ticket price is between 50 and 500 euros.
Spring in Seville is the time for numerous interesting festivals and fairs. One of the festivals is usually celebrated on the second half of April. During a week all squares of the city become the location of performances of folk groups. Local people and tourists dress up in old costumes, and street traders offer various unusual gifts and crafts to passersby. Many interesting festivals are held in suburban areas. Country residents also organize interesting fairs and carnivals, which are usually devoted to patrons of fertility.
