Ciclovida, the Seville Car-free Sunday


The third edition of Ciclovida was held in January in Seville; it has become a city event open to all. On Sunday, January 16th, children, families, the young and not so young were all able to make the most of an urban space usually taken over by motor traffic. This programme is gradually becoming consolidated and we will be able to enjoy Ciclovida much more often in the future.

All of  you who visit Seville are encouraged to take part in the Ciclovida scheduled for Sunday, March 27th.
