Seville Feria comes to Benidorm

Seville's April Fair - La Feria de Abril, is a huge annual event that takes place 2 weeks after Easter (Semana Santa) and is a week long fiesta of flamenco dancing, processions and eating & drinking. It is the highlight of the social calendar and locals dress up in their traditional costumes - the ladies will have on beautifully colourful flamenco-style dresses called "farales" and the men will have on their "traje de corto" consisting of short jacket, tight trousers and boots! This year it takes place from 24th -29th April but don't worry if you can't make it down to Seville, after all its over 500km because a little bit of Seville is coming to Benidorm!

Taberna Andaluza - one of the participating restaurants
From Monday 23rd until Saturday 28th five restaurants have got together to organise a mini Feria to bring you a taste of Seville. Each night you will be able to sample some traditional Sevillian food and drink and also be entertained by performers who have come all the way up from Seville.

There are 5 to see in total and each night they will be at a different venue. Between 5.30pm and 7pm you can have a FREE Sevillian dance lesson at any of the 5 participating restaurants then between 9.30pm and Midnight they will be performing. All of the restaurants are located in the Old Town, but 2 are just off the Plaza Triangular. The Taberna Andaluza is almost opposite the Madeira Centro Hotel (the blue hotel with the glass lift on the outside) and the Isla Cristina is on the Calle Gerona (pedestrianised street).
The other ones are Angelino on Avd del Rey Jaime 1; Restaurant Esturion on Avd de Panama and Cazorla on Avd de Beniarda.
