The countdown to the annual display of colour, light, glitter, music and satire has begun. Numerous points in Spain are already preparing to celebrate the 2019 Carnival, which starts on February 28 but will have its big week in many places in the first days of March.
We propose a tour with Casual Hotels so you don't miss a single detail of this party, perfect to enjoy with the family.
The Cádiz Carnival, recognized as being of International Tourist Interest, transforms the city into a real party, ideal for adults and children. Along with the costumes, some of them authentic works of art, its famous chirigotas stand out, along with popular coplas and murgas . And all this culminates in the Gran Teatro Falla , where the Cadiz Carnival Group Contest is held, where they compete to be the most original and fun group through music and ingenious lyrics that leave no one indifferent. You can check the program of activities here.
In Malaga, best European destination 2019, where Casual Hotels has the centrally located Casual del Mar , carnivals flood both the historic center and the rest of the city's corners. Murgas, comparsas choirs bring joy to the people of Malaga and visitors in the streets in a week prior to Ash Wednesday and that culminates on the beaches of La Malagueta, with the burial of the anchovy.
In many parts of Spain, the Carnival ends with the famous burial of the sardine, as in Cádiz, but also in San Sebastián , where our hotel chain will disembark next March with the Casual de las Olas , which will have 61 rooms and will be located in Plaza Pío XII.
Music and floats designed for this moment flood every corner of the city.
Madrid is also faithful to this appointment. The capital will be decked out in creative costumes from March 1-6. You can enjoy this by staying at our Madrid Casual del Teatro themed hotels.
In Valencia, the neighborhoods of Ruzafa and Benimaclet display all their creativity for this festival. The carnivals of Segorbe, Vinarós and Pego, in the Valencian Community, are also very famous.
