We are planning a Spain/France trip in which we arrive in Sevilla on Sunday, May 4th and leave on Tuesday, May 6th in the evening. We are planning on staying in the Santa Cruz neighborhood and most of our plans revolve around the Cathedral, Alcazar, and the Barrio Santa Cruz self-guided walk. We also plan on enjoying some of the wonderful Tapas Bars and nightlife on both nights (May 4th and 5th) while trying to take in a Flamenco performance. Do you think our trip will be adversely affected by the April Fair, which is from May 5th - May 10th? We have read that food quality and local service can plummet during this time period. Is this true? Also, will restaurants or sights shut down starting on May 5th?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
