“Velá of Santiago and Santa Ana” in Triana
July 25th until 31st
The “Santa Ana´s Velá”, in Triana, is the “July´s Fair” and the most festive event of the sevillian summer. This popular party has its origin at the end of the XIII century. This party started with the purpose of celebrate the religious festive of the quarter´s patron or virgin but, even when now it also has something of religious, the priority is the cultural acts: flamenco, folkloric songs, music, competitions… and, over all of it, is the party that celebrates trianeros and sevillians.
In Betis Street is where the stands will set up, the structure is similar to the Seville´s Fair, with free access. In Altozano square is where the stage will be installed where every night there are different types of actuations where the visitor will fall in love with the most authentic art.
Also, we have to give a special mention to the gastronomy that we could taste, which is based on a big variety of typical and popular dishes: fried fish, montaditos, ensaladilla, Spanish omelette… All of them with the company of a good summer wine or a very cold beer.
We can´t miss the wonderful views right there, where we can see Triana´s bridge, the Maestranza bullring, the Golden Tower and the Cathedral.
