Approximately one million people attend the festival. It began as a cattle market in 1847 with tents erected for the selling of the animals.
Nowadays, the tents are striped in bright colours and inside there is music and dancing. The tents are called casetas (little houses). Most of the casetas are erected in an area of the festival known as El Real de la Feria, and there are around one thousand of them!
Every year, there is a temporary gateway to the Feria, called La Portada. Right are the gateways of 2008 and The gateway is covered in electric light bulbs so that it is lit up at night time. For that reason, it is also known as La Alumbrada, meaning 'the illuminated one.'
The very first gateway to open the Seville Fair.
Each day there is a fairground known as 'the street of hell' (La Calle del Infierno), horse parades, bull-fights, dancing and music, and general merry-making!
