Feria de Abril Sevilla 2010 Andalucia
The casetas are hosted by groups of aristocratic Sevillana families, clubs, trade unions and political parties. Each of the tents has its own atmosphere and traditions. Some are invitation-only affairs, while others are "open" and have commercial bars. So just roam around and find the vibe that works for you.
One of the most notorious and fun casetas is "Er 77," where wine is drawn from a well and poured from buckets, and cots are offered in the back for napping. Another famous tent is "Los Duendes de Sevilla" (The Goblins of Seville) which is named for a painting by Alvarez Quintero. You can also expect a lively time at the casetas erected by Seville's many leftist and anarchist groups.
