      Jerez is a close second to Seville for me on so many levels. I’d love to live there!

    I live right across from the fairgrounds and I may or may not have plans to go every day between yesterday and Thursday. We’ll see if I survive!

    physically i’ve never been to any fair, but i’ve been to lots of them through the telly, haha

    such a grandiosity or intensity does exhaust me, so i have no desire to attend any.

    anyway La Feria del Caballo is quite famous outside Spain, and even a very famous american actress called Bo Derek attends year after year to see horses dance (or whatever it is called) and even she buys horses or used to buy to take them to her ranch in the USA.

    nice pics by the way!

      Jerez is a top destination for horse lovers. I took my mom to see the Real Escuela Ecuestra (you can search for it in a Spain Snapshots from last July or so), as well as to ride.

    I went to Sevilla this year to experience my very first Feria de Abril! Or should I say de Mayo this time around? Either way it was a super great time, but I did find myself wondering what the feria in Jerez is like especially since I heard that most casetas there are public unlike in Sevilla. Now I know a little bit more thanks to you :) Next year I will actually be moving to Sevilla so I can’t miss the feria, but I will definitely make some time for a trip to Jerez too!

      You’ll be in Seville next year – that’s great! And yes, Jerez is definitely worth the trip…just don’ try and catch the last train back after all the rebujito!

    Never been to a Feria like this, but it looks interesting to see. I wouldn’t be dancing sevillanas though.

    One of my friends (okay, Mario’s) is dating this new guy and they’re all headed there this weekend, but I get the feeling she does NOT want to dress up or dance the night away. I think just seeing it would be fun, though! And drinking a few rebujitos …

      I am making it my life’s mission to get you dancing sevillanas. Should only take a jar or two of rebujito!

    Despite living in Cádiz for half a year, I never actually made it to Jerez! (The airport doesn’t count.) I’d love to try and make it to their Feria next year, but going to Sevilla’s is my priority :)

      Do them both! Jerez is so lovely and worth a trip, too!
