SITGES CARNIVAL

Sitges, Spain | 5th March 2019

PRICE: €25 | US$ 28 | £22 | AU$ 36

 

Once a year before Lent begins, the beautiful seaside town of Sitges goes bonkers for sequins, feathers, frivolity and Carnival. We’ve never been ones to miss out on a party, and will charter a bus for 2019, fill it with sangria, you, fancy dress, face paint, and head to the insanity!

WHAT IS IT?

The wildest winter fiesta in Spain! Beat the February chill at the hottest party this side of the Atlantic. Carnival is celebrated around the world and Sitges is one of its biggest hotspots, with 250,000 people flocking to this small coastal town. Carnival marks the last chance to go absolutely wild and give in to every temptation before the 40 days of Lent begin. This is your chance dress up and get freaky, go all out in sequins, feather boas and body paint, or even put on a mask if you desire. Sitges is the gay and lesbian capital of Europe, they sure do know how to party. So throw your inhibitions out the window, along with your shirt, and let’s have one heck of a party

The final and busiest day of the carnival is called Fat Tuesday, when the local carnival parade makes its way down the Rua del Extermini in decorated carriages, sporting the campest razzle-dazzle type outfits you have ever seen. Each parade is themed, for example… Rua de la Disbauxa – the Debauchery Parade, on Sunday night and the Rua de l‘Extermini – the Extermination Parade, on Tuesday night.

Tour Location

Sitges, Spain

Sitges is a coastal town, located just 45 minutes from Barcelona, Spain. It is sheltered by the Garraf mountains and this combined with its position in the Mediterranean, means Sitges has a warm “micro-climate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities all year round. It has 4km of beach with a beautiful sea front promenade lined with 20th century colonial mansions, and this is the perfect backdrop for the Sitges Carnival. Sitges town is a bit of a maze, thats why we send guides into the madness with you, to show you around and take you to all the hottest spots.

What happens if I miss the bus back?
We met back at the buses at 1:30am to return to Barcelona. Buttttt if you want to continue the party in Sitges or if things just don’t go to plan, the metro runs 24 hours, just jump on back to Passig De Gracia.

It may be Spain, but it is still winter in Barcelona! But bring a jumper, find a dancing partner and dance that cold away.
