I'm going to be in Sevilla right before Semana Santa for language school. Is it worth staying one extra day (on 13 April) for the first day of Semana Santa or would it be better to get out of Sevilla before things get crazed? cool

I think you should stay to see the beginning of Semana Santa. It really is a wonderful experience. I will be in Sevilla that day (Sunday, April 13) then I'm off to Madrid on Monday.

Man-oh-Man. If you have an opportunity see more of Semana Santa in Sevilla DO IT. My ladyfriend (from Madrid) and I spent the entire week in Sevilla (actually sleeping in nearby town Alcalá de Guadaira and bussed in) and have the most wonderful time. Everyone was so smartly dressed, even the children. Do it if you can!!! You'll be glad you did!

Saludos, MadridMan

There is a free magazine El Giraldillo available at most kiosks. This will tell you what is happening in Sevilla. Also if you want to meet other students you should go to Plaza Alfalfa and Plaza del Salvador. Both places are a big party zone. You will fall in love with Sevilla. --Fred

hey everybody

excuse me
but what has happened to leonese traditions?!
isnt the el giraldillo a dance in the province of leon?why is it taken as a sevilla hotel name.
why is leonese culture taken as **** in spain?
they dont even have there own region which prior to 1983 included zamora and salamanca.now its only a little region near asturias and galicia.
when i watch spanish t.v. the only thing i see about leon is el bierzo like ponferrada and villafranca.what about the mysterious maragateria or sahagun or even leon.gees is the spanish goverment retarted or something. mad eek cool

hey everybody

oops
th leonese dance is the JIRALDILLA NOT the JIRALDILLO.so the hotel wasnt necessarily dissing leonese culture by copying the name of the dance for there own name.
oh well
oh man oh man oh man manman
i guess i got lighten up on these posts to reasonable limit,no?
oh and please do not mistaken me for a lonese nationalist.
im not leonese.i just happen to defend spanish regions when i THINK they have had some problems.
i also meantioned the goverment in this,only because i noticed that certain regions with problems always and i do mean always blaim it on the goverment

hasta luego
see ya dude

fmiketheman, you definitely need to lighten up! wink

and where did you get the idea that el giraldillo was the name of a HOTEL in sevilla? i believe the poster was referring to a tourism MAGAZINE?

el giraldillo has special meaning for the sevillanos because it is the name for the small statue you see atop LA GIRALDA (the bell tower) at the Cathedral.

just passing on some información!
