Hit Seville’s Feria de Abril then, where more than one million people blow off steam with a week of tapas munching, wine guzzling, horse riding and flamenco dancing. Now that sounds like a party.

Look out for the casetas – rows of candy-striped marquee tents where you can get on the local sherry.

Why: Now famous for its all-night sevillanas (folk dances with music), this festival began as a humble cattle fair in the late 1840s.

However, it didn’t take long before the Sevillanos decided that it would be much more fun to ditch the cows and throw a massive fiesta instead.

Do it because: There’s a relaxed family vibe during the day, but at night the real fun starts when bottles of wine and sherry are cracked open, the bars are packed and the parties go on until the small hours of the following morning.
