The big brands are concentrated in the pedestrian streets Tetuán and Sierpes (and its surroundings).

During Easter Sevillians and thousands of visitors follow with great devotion the parade of religious brotherhoods through the streets of the city. Getting accommodation or getting a table in bars and restaurants becomes an almost impossible goal.
