Barcelona information

February Carnaval, Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday.

From Fat Thursday to Ash Wednesday, Barcelona gives itself up heart and soul to the kingdom of Carnestoltes. With a warm heart and a party mood, this potbellied ruler guides the desires of the city, filling Barcelona with masked balls, great feasts and processions full of creativity. In 2004 it begins on February 19th. Also huge celebrations and parades in Sitges, 30 minutes from the city.
The Carnival has many activities, like the entrance of the Rei Carnestoltes (King) as the inauguration of the festivities, or the Big "Botifarrada", a big catalan sausage breakfast. The main dish of course is La Gran Rua, the big parade where hundreds dress in their fanciest and craziest costumes and other thousands watch them!
Each neighbourhood has its own celebrations, one better than the other, so there are lots of choices to have a great time. Website.
