Feria del Caballo 2012
Yes I know, it’s traitorous, disloyal, blah-blah-blah to say this, but the Feria del Caballo in Jerez beats the heckity out of the more famous and much larger Feria de Abril in Sevilla. It just does.
First of all because most of the casetas are open to the public. You know, like a fair ought to be. And instead of being in a massive parking lot like here it’s inside a pretty park with palm trees and flowers. Then there are the horses! Without a doubt the most spectacular in all of Spain.
I’m hoping to spend an afternoon there this week. If you’re interested in going there’s an easy train connection from either San Bernardo or Santa Justa stations, just over an hour for about 20 euros return. Though if you want to see the fairground lit up at night you’ll have to stay over as the last train leaves at 20.48 and accommodation may be scarce. But it’s a great day trip!
