Holy Week in Cádiz. Although there are Holy Week processions throughout Spain, those in the province of Cádiz have something special: the flamenco touch that you will not find elsewhere. From April 2 to 9, the Holy Weeks of Cádiz capital and Jerez are declared of National Tourist Interest, they have a long tradition and you will be surprised when, suddenly, a spontaneous person begins to sing a saeta to the Virgin or the Christ to her passed. Even if you are not very religious, the flamenco art expressed at Easter will make your hair stand on end.

MotoGP World Championship in Jerez. A little further on in the calendar, from April 28 to 30, Jerez will once again host the great motorcycle festival, the Moto GP Spanish Grand Prix, at its Ángel Nieto Circuit. The party and the activities around the bikers reach not only Jerez, but a good part of the province of Cádiz, where there are many events related to motorcycles.

Feria de Jerez 2023. And almost without leaving one event we get into another: the Horse Fair returns to Jerez from May 6 to 13. Flamenco dresses, sevillanas, rebujito, horse ride… the Jerez Fair is stately, elegance, flamenco, fun, color and much more. Enter any booth and enjoy the flamenco performances that fill the Real de la Feria for free, don’t forget to ask for a rebujito and a good ham to accompany it. Very close to the Real, you have at your disposal the Hotel Jerez & Spa and the Hotel Villa Jerez.

More fairs. The Jerez Fair marks the start of the rest of the fairs that run through the province of Cádiz in each locality without exception until the month of September, without interruption. In Rota, the Spring Fair brings flamenco, sevillanas and fun from May 4 to 7; A little further on in the calendar, from June 6 to 11, the Sanlúcar de Barrameda Manzanilla Fair, dedicated to its most international wine, is also very attractive.

Pizza Festival. And another very different event, the Pizza Festival, will be held in Rota from March 16 to 19, just before welcoming spring. Did you know that Rota is one of the Spanish cities with the most pizzerias per inhabitant? The reason lies in the presence of the Rota naval base and the North American personnel, who have influenced the gastronomic customs of the town. A weekend to taste a wide variety of pizzas and many other activities.

Relaxation on the beach. If you are more of those who want to take their first dip in the sea and relax on the beach, there are also plenty of plans for you in the province of Cádiz in spring. Kilometers and kilometers of beaches with all the services you need and an exceptional climate to enjoy the sun and the sea in spring. Our hotels Playa de la Luz and Duque de Nájera are located on the seafront in Rota, very close to other epicenters of tourism in the province of Cádiz.

Centenary of Lola Flores. In January 2023, one hundred years have passed since the birth of a universal Jerez: the great Lola Flores. And to celebrate it, the city has prepared a great program of events and routes through the places she frequented as a child. In addition, in spring the Lola Flores Museum will be open to the public, which the Jerez City Council has promoted in collaboration with the Pharaoh’s family, and which will house a large number of objects from her legacy.

Nature tourism. In spring, the province of Cádiz is a spectacle of nature. The natural parks of Los Alcornocales or the Sierra de Cádiz offer in all their splendor the best routes, trails and active tourism activities for children and adults. If you also travel with your bike and practice cycling, the province of Cádiz is a treasure to discover.

Donana in spring. Speaking of spectacles of nature, how can we not talk about Doñana in spring. After the winter rains, the marshes and the national park in general are at their best to enjoy a unique experience full of life. And it is that Doñana inhabits the largest European bird reserve, with more than 300 species, some of which are habitual residents, and others are passing through. You can cross to the park by barge from Sanlúcar, or do it through Huelva, with one of the many active tourism companies that offer excursions.

“El Rocío”. We stayed in Huelva because another unique spring experience in southern Andalusia is El Rocío, the pilgrimage of thousands of people to the village of Almonte, which is much more than a religious event, it is an experience and a feeling that is difficult to forget. . In 2023, the big days of El Rocío are May 28 and 29; In the previous days, the province of Cádiz was filled with pilgrims heading to Sanlúcar, where the brotherhoods embarked to cross the Guadalquivir River and make their way to Almonte through the Doñana National Park for several days. Who has lived it, repeat.

Patios Festival. Spring is synonymous with this festival in many Andalusian towns, where the residents open their houses and dress up to show the flowery decoration and pots that they have been pampering for a whole year, and which in spring become an explosion of colours. In the province of Cádiz, the Fiesta de los Patios in El Puerto de Santa María stands out, straddling Jerez and Rota, where from April 20 to 23 you can delight yourself with the careful floral decoration of a multitude of participating homes.
