Holy week leading up to Easter

I have heard that great things happen in Seville about this time, but what is it really like then?

What happens?

Are lots of places (ie shops, restaurants, clubs, bars) still open or will they all be closed on religious days?

Is there lots of festivity at this time?

Dear Global:

Many stores will be open half day. At night they have the processions, which together with the ones in Malaga are the best in Spain. Probably a million tourists will go to see the processions, so it will be very crowded and you need to make your reservations extremely early, sometimes a year in advance. Most of the tourists will be Spanish, many native Sevillans living in other places who want to go home for a visit.

All the restaurants will be open, but they will be crowded. The processions are every night and there are about 8 every night, each one of a different brotherhood. Remember that this is a very religious festivity, so if you do not care for it, I would advise you not to go at that time. The processions are very serious, with a lot of crying and very high emotions.

Not a good time to party!
