Barcelona’s Carnival is mostly for children. Year ago, there was a huge parade – La Gran Rua – similar to the Brazilian ones, however the city council decided in 2012 to discontinue it and to celebrate a more traditional and historical Carnival. If you are looking for a more crazy-party Carnival you have to go to Sitges. This little village, 30 minutes away from Barcelona, is a street party theme for adults. This Carnival has over 100 years of history. It’s all about color, music and rhythm. There is so much people that it’s practically impossible to walk on the street. The children’s parades take place in the afternoon while the adult parades are at night.
During the most popular night parade, more than 200K people visit the village so be ready for a very crowded celebration.
As you can see, Carnival is the traditional Spanish ”Halloween”. How would you dress up if you were going to go out in Sitges? Here are some ideas!
