Rick Steves’ European Easter: Palm Sunday in Sevilla

In this segment of Rick Steves’ European Easter, we'll experience one of Europe's most bombastic Holy Week celebrations: the processions of Sevilla's Semana Santa. Beginning on Palm Sunday, neighborhood congregations around Sevilla adorn their floats with flowers and candles, as costaleros prepare to carry those floats through the streets on their backs, amid a parade of cloaked penitents.

Granada, Spain: The Exquisite Alhambra

More info about travel to Granada: Granada's dominant sight is the Alhambra, the last and greatest Moorish palace. For two centuries, until 1492, Granada reigned as the capital of a dwindling Moorish empire. As Christian forces pushed the Moors farther and farther south, this palace was the last hurrah of a sophisticated civilization.

Arcos de la Frontera, Spain: Queen of Andalucía

More info about travel to Arcos de la Frontera: The route of the Pueblos Blancos, or white towns, is a charm bracelet of characteristic towns perched in the hills and mountains of Andalucía. The queen of the hill towns, Arcos de la Frontera, smothers its hilltop and tumbles down its back like the train of a wedding dress. Towns with de la Frontera in their names, like Arcos, were established on the frontier during the battle to reclaim Spain from the Muslims. As the Moors retreated into Northern Africa, the frontier towns, though no longer on the frontier, kept the de la Frontera as part of their names.

Sevilla's Spring Fair

Throughout southern Spain — a region so expert at fiestas and romance — locals greet each spring with a festival for all ages. In Sevilla, much of the city packs into its vast fairgrounds each April for seven days of dancing, drinking, and socializing. The horses are nearly as dressed up as the people, a springtime flirtatiousness fills the air, and travelers are more than welcome to join in the fun.

In this clip from my new, one-hour Rick Steves' European Festivals public television special, I explore the fair with my friend Concepción. Want to be there, too? Start planning your trip now with my Rick Steves Spain 2018 guidebook:
