When booking us on a flight on April 2 (Palm Sunday), arriving at 3:35 pm in Seville from Lisbon, I wasn't aware that we would be getting in right in the middle of the Samana Santa Processions. We are staying very close to the cathedral and I'm concerned we will not be able to make our way to our accommodations with all the street closures. I understand the taxi will leave us off on the outskirts and we will then need to make our way on foot, with luggage, etc. I'm reading that crossing streets will be problematic, and since we are unfamiliar with our surroundings, even more difficult. In addition, being so close to the action, will the noise be crazy until 1:00 am? Does anyone have any experience with this? Would I be better off rescheduling our flight to an early morning flight (7:30 am) out of Lisbon and/or maybe trying, at this late date, to find accommodations that are outside of the center of Seville? Honestly, I even thought of avoiding Seville altogether but I do want to see it and it does leave me with 4 nights to figure out where else to go since we are headed to Barcelona on April 6 for 5 nights and then onto Madrid for 4.
Would love any insights anyone has... Thank you.
