Yes, its true. The song "The Macarena" came from two brothers from Sevilla, who named their hit after la Virgen Macarena, an important figure in the neighborhood and in the Semana Santa celebration. I walked all the way there--3.5 km!--and encountered the mighty yellow Macarena gate that marked the entrance to the neighborhood. Beside it was a pretty yellow and white building with wrought iron gates. I decided to go inside, because, why not?
