The scent of flowers and tasty tapas hangs in the air and the bright frills of multi-coloured flamenco dresses ruffle amongst the legs of the crowd, as they flood the streets of Seville in an explosion of Spanish culture at the Feria de Abril. The Feria de Abril lasts for a full week, following Holy Week at the end of April, and centres around Los Remedios, across the Guadalquivir river.
